On behalf of the 94th Airlift Wing Command Team:

Team Dobbins,

Taking care of Americans, Airmen and their families has been a top priority this year. We’re continuing our efforts by preparing to receive and administer the COVID-19 vaccine to our Airmen when supplies are available. Although we are not sure of the timeline to receive the vaccinations, we are prepped and ready to vaccinate our Airmen when the opportunity arises.

The 94th Airlift Wing’s overall capabilities depend on the individual readiness of each Airman. Chief Robertson and I plan to get the vaccination as soon as possible. I believe it’s an important safeguard that will help protect our teammates and our community, while sustaining our ability to execute the mission.

Sustaining operations while mitigating the virus is crucial. We’ve done this all year - like when we housed quarantined cruise ship passengers and when our aircrews delivered our nurses to provide COVID-19 relief in New York City. The next phase of our efforts includes vaccinating our personnel and it’s just as important as our previous accomplishments.

We also continue to ask our Airmen to take actions to protect themselves and others by employing protective measures, including practicing good hand washing, ensuring social distancing, wearing masks when social distancing is not possible, and taking appropriate actions if feeling sick.

Some of you will have questions about the COVID-19 vaccination. I encourage you to use all official resources to educate yourselves, such as the questions and answers published by AFRC in the link below, or information from the CDC.

Team, thanks for all you do every day. You’ve continued to provide combat air power and agile combat support to the Department of Defense, ensuring continued security for our nation.

Do you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine? AF and AFRC specific Q&A information can be found here:



Here’s some sample questions from the link:

Q: Is the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for Air Force Reservists?

A: The vaccine is strongly encouraged for the health of our Air Force Reserve Forces, however it is not yet mandatory.  Reservists are strongly encroached to get the COVID vaccination through your civilian medical provider. Reservists and beneficiaries will be eligible for the COVID vaccine based on the approved Phase/Tier prioritization. The COVID-19 vaccine is currently listed in all military members IMR profiles; however, it is not yet mandatory.

Q: Which vaccine will the units receive? And, when can they expect them?

A: Not known at this time. A DoD level operational planning team (OPT) will determine the vaccine product to fill COVID 19 vaccine orders from Reserve units. The timeline for delivery has not been determined.

Q: If a person receives the vaccine from civilian provider (i.e. medical, first responder, etc.) what documentation do they need to bring in to certify receiving the vaccine?

A: For members who get vaccinated off base, follow service policy guidance for recording the vaccine in your shot record; standard documentation (vaccine name or code, date received, series (dose 1 or 2), manufacturer & LOT number) should be provided to the MTF/RMU for capturing the vaccination in ASIMS.
