The 442d Fighter Wing administered its first round of Covid-19 vaccines during the February unit training assembly here.

With 100 doses on hand, Airmen at the highest health risk were given the option to receive the vaccination first.

Those who received the first round of the vaccine this drill weekend will receive the second round of the two-part vaccination during the March UTA. Some unvaccinated Airmen may also have the option to receive their first shot then. Master Sgt. Ronald Knox, the Medical Services Section Chief for the 442d Medical Squadron here, took part in vaccinating Airmen.

Knox said he thinks it's important for others to consider vaccination to aid in stopping the spread of the virus. Knox also received the vaccination. Airmen interested in receiving the vaccination can speak to their squadron commander or Air Reserve Technician staff.
