While the COVID-19 pandemic still sweeps the world, many people in the United States have been lucky to receive one of the available vaccines under the guidelines carefully laid out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Members of the armed forces currently qualify as one of the groups that can readily receive the COVID-19 vaccine. As of May 10, 2021, the CDC also expanded their vaccine recommendations to include adolescents aged 12-15.
With the vaccine readily available to most people in the country, there’s no excuse to not get vaccinated as soon as possible. But if you’re a member of the military and you might need a little extra convincing, check out these discounts and freebies available to those who present a valid COVID-19 vaccination card.
