For those currently serving: Ensure that any and all adverse action regarding the COVID-19 vaccine mandate is removed from your records.

For those who were already discharged for failing to receive the vaccine, you may petition your Military Department’s DRB and BCMR to request a correction to your personnel record, including records regarding the characterization of your discharge.
