NSA begins administering Moderna vaccine in phases

  • Bahrain News

Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Unit (NMRTU) Bahrain began administering the Moderna vaccine on board Naval Support Activity (NSA) Bahrain on Jan. 4.

The vaccine is being administered in phases to ensure personnel at risk of being exposed daily are prioritized to receive it first, including healthcare, emergency services, public safety, and command staff personnel.




Prioritized DOD personnel are highly encouraged to take the vaccine in order to protect their health, families and community, and to mitigate public health risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The two-dose vaccine was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration under an emergency use authorization and is currently offered to DOD personnel on a voluntary basis.

The first shipment of the vaccination arrived in Bahrain on Dec. 30, and after clearing customs, was ground delivered to NSA Bahrain and placed in cold-storage until used for inoculations.
