US Soldiers Receive COVID Vaccine at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait

Soldiers of the 228th Combat Support Hospital at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait received their first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine on January 18, according to DVIDS.

“The hope is to flatten the curve and try to eliminate this, at least for soldiers here in Kuwait,” said Col Deborah Mahar Garcia, deputy commander for nursing.

Mahar Garcia clarified that the doses administered on January 18 were “only for people who touch patients,” including doctors, nurses, and other staff in patient care. Credit: DVIDS via Storyful
