JBLM Lewis Main Exchange Vaccine Drive - Tuesday through Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m

Tuesday through Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the JBLM Lewis Main Exchange, located at Bldg. 5280 Pendleton Ave., patients and other TRICARE beneficiaries can get themselves and eligible family members age 12 and older vaccinated. The extended vaccine drive is a walk-in service that is expected to increase vaccinations at JBLM, bringing the community one step closer to defeating the COVID-19 pandemic and reaching the goal of returning to normal operations. Since mid-December 2020, Madigan has been exclusively administering the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA vaccine that is given in a two-dose series separated by 21 days; it has shown to be both safe and highly effective. Patients can get either their first or second dose at the walk-in site. Patients must receive the same vaccine for both doses. Madigan does not supply or administer the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Madigan COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Update

Madigan expects to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the very near future. Once the first shipment of vaccine becomes available, there will most likely be a limited supply. In the coming months, we will be working hard to protect families in the JBLM community by providing the vaccine to our staff and patients, which include service members, their families and our valued retirees, on a voluntary basis. Certain groups, like frontline medical workers and #JBLM first responders, will be recommended to get the vaccine first, based on CDC guidance. We expect more vaccine early next year as U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) coordinates its COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan to protect the U.S. population, maintain military readiness, and support the nation’s pandemic response. Stay tuned for updates about the COVID-19 vaccine. In the meantime, please continue to properly wear masks, practice social distancing, and hand washing/hand hygiene. Stay healthy, stay informed, and stay safe! For more details on the DoD COVID-19 vaccine distro plan: https://go.usa.gov/xA3RZ Questions about the vaccine?
