The Department of Defense says 68% of active-duty military personnel have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccinations are not mandatory for service members. The 'rumor control' section of the DoD's site states, "Any COVID19 vaccine that becomes available under pre-licensure status, such as an FDA emergency use authorization (EUA), will be voluntary for service members, though highly encouraged for priority populations. Once formally licensed by the FDA, a vaccine may become mandatory for military personnel, as is the case for the influenza vaccine."
