From the Document: "The Pentagon Reservation remains at Health Protection Condition (HPCON) Bravo Plus (Bravo +). We have seen an increase in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and positive test results in the National Capitol Region (NCR) in recent weeks. Additional mitigation measures will be implemented on the Pentagon Reservation to protect the workforce and our support to the no-fail mission of the Department of Defense. We will continually assess health protection measures and will update this guidance, as appropriate. [1] All DoD personnel are strongly encouraged to receive the booster dose to protect themselves against COVID-19. Individuals 18 years of age or older, who completed a primary vaccination series with an mRNA [messenger ribonucleic acids] vaccine (i.e., Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty or Moderna) at least six months ago, and those who received a Johnson & Johnson shot at least two months ago, are eligible for a booster dose. COVID-19 vaccinations remain widely available at military medical treatment facilities and other locations at no cost to the recipient. [2] COVID-19 vaccines will again be available for eligible Service members, DoD civilian employees, and on-site DoD contractor personnel at the DiLorenzo Pentagon Health Clinic and at the Pentagon Library Conference Center, beginning on January 5, 2022. Individuals can make a reservation for a vaccination, through this CAC [common access card] restricted URL: https://apps.sp.pentagon.mil/sites/Vaccination/Pages/Home.aspx. The Pentagon Health Clinic is currently administering only the Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty COVID-19 vaccine. [3] DoD personnel are encouraged to consider using an FDA-approved COVID-19 home test kit upon return from the Federal holiday period prior to returning to the workplace."
