Pentagon drops COVID-19 vaccine mandate for troops


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon formally dropped its COVID-19 vaccination mandate Tuesday, but a new memo signed by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin also gives commanders some discretion in how or whether to deploy troops who are not vaccinated.

Austin’s memo has been widely anticipated ever since legislation signed into law on Dec. 23 gave him 30 days to rescind the mandate. The Defense Department had already stopped all related personnel actions, such as discharging troops who refused the shot.

      FALLS CHURCH, Va.  –  Would you like to know more about your TRICARE health plan costs? Maybe you’d like to compare different plans to find the most cost-effective one. TRICARE’s online compare cost tool can help you look up your health plan’s costs and review multiple health plan costs at the same time.   “It’s important for TRICARE beneficiaries to have a fast, easy way to look up costs associated with their health plan,” said Robert Agnello, deputy chief of Digital Communications at the Defense Health Agency. “With the TRICARE Compare Cost Tool, you can look up costs for covered services, enrollment, and more. You can also see how your plan’s costs compare to other plans.”
