Family Vaccine FAQs

Q: Is the CG vaccinating dependents?
A.  Yes, the CG has now included dependents in the vaccination plan.  CG dependent family members are key to the readiness of the Active and Reserve force.  CG clinics will vaccinate dependents in communities where there is demand and the vaccine is not readily available from civilian providers, DoD Medical Treatment Facilities, or other sources.  Dependents who request the vaccine from a CG clinic are required to provide proof of dependent status.


Q: How do I find out if my local CG clinic will vaccinate my dependents?
A. Please contact your local CG clinic to determine if they are administering COVID-19 vaccinations to dependents. To find the contact information for local CG clinics, download the Heath, Safety, Work-Life Service Center (HSWL SC) app. For iPhone users: For Android users:

Q. Will TRICARE beneficiaries, including military retirees, have access to the vaccine?
A. Yes. TRICARE beneficiaries empaneled at a DoD Military Treatment Facility (MTF) are eligible to receive the vaccine at a DoD MTF. TRICARE beneficiaries who receive care at DoD MTFs on a space-available basis can alternately receive vaccine through the local civilian medical providers. Coast Guard clinics will not be directly vaccinating dependents, so Coast Guard dependents have the options of getting vaccinated through their TRICARE physician, civilian pharmacy, or DoD MTF. 


Q. Should pregnant or breastfeeding women receive COVID-19 vaccine?
A.  See CDC for details (COVID-19 Vaccines While Pregnant or Breastfeeding (
