Service Members the following link which provides more information 
regarding all authorized COVID-19 vaccines, 
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/index.html.  If 
an unvaccinated Service Member becomes fully vaccinated for COVID- 
19, it is the Navy’s intent to retain that Service Member, barring 
other misconduct or reasons for involuntary separation. 
 
4.  Action.  Commanders are directed to report any previously 
unvaccinated Navy Service Member who completes an approved vaccine 
series via email to both of the following addresses:
