Uniformed Services ID cards for retirees and their family members that expired between Jan. 1, 2020 and July 31, 2021 will remain valid through Jan. 21, 2022. USID cards that expired before Jan. 1, 2020 or after July 31, 2021 have not been extended and will not be accepted. For a listing of all ID card issuing sites and appointment or walk-in information, visit https://idco.dmdc.osd.mil/idco/#/.

All Department of Veterans Affairs facilities and clinics that administer COVID-19 vaccines are accepting walk-ins for eligible veterans, spouses and caregivers. President Joe Biden signed the Save Lives Act into law March 24, expanding VA’s legal authority to provide COVID-19 vaccines to all veterans, regardless of their VA health care enrollment status, as well as veteran spouses, caregivers and some beneficiaries. Interested veterans, their caregivers and veteran spouses who qualify under the legislation can visit https://www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/ to get more information about COVID-19 vaccines at VA.

TRICARE beneficiaries can contact their local TRICARE network pharmacy to determine if they may schedule an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as supplies are distributed in their area. To locate a local TRICARE network pharmacy, visit https://militaryrx.express-scripts.com/find-pharmacy. TRICARE beneficiaries can receive the COVID-19 vaccine at non-network pharmacies -- at no charge -- as supplies are distributed in their area. Currently, under the federal response, pharmacies are prohibited from balance billing patients for COVID-19 vaccines.
