FORT CARSON — Fort Carson will be sending soldiers to support national vaccine efforts on the west coast.

A release from the Mountain Post said more than 200 soldiers from the 4th Infantry Division will deploy to Los Angeles on Thursday to support a state-run, federally-supported COVID-19 vaccination center.

U.S. Army North, the Joint Force Land Component Command of U.S. Northern Command, will oversee the military COVID-19 response operation in support of state and federal vaccination efforts.

Fort Carson said it is prepared and ready to assist the Department of Defense and national interagency partners in the fight against COVID-19.
