Coast Guard dependent vaccination update

Now is a great time to get vaccinated and get back to enjoying life without a mask!

As of April 30, 2021, Coast Guard clinics are authorized to vaccinate Coast Guard dependents. For greater ease of scheduling, a list of the available clinics offering the COVID-19 vaccination and their phone numbers can be found here.

Consistent with the new mask guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fully vaccinated people, including Coast Guard personnel and their dependents, can resume activities without wearing masks or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.

Fully vaccinated personnel and their dependents can start doing many of the things that were not possible because of the pandemic.

This chart details what fully vaccinated people can now enjoy doing without a mask.
