COVID-19 UPDATES
Current Health Protection Condition

By order of the installation commander, as of October 2, Little Rock AFB is now in Health Protection Condition (HPCON) ALPHA. 

New CDC COVID-19 guidance regardless of vaccination status:

If exposed:

  • Wear a high quality mask whenever around others indoors for 10 days.
  • No need to quarantine.

If you test positive:

  • Isolate for 5 days.
  • No symptoms, or resolving symptoms, wear a high quality mask for an additional 5 days.

Please remember unit commanders may impose additional restrictions, as necessary, to protect their force and mission. Additionally, the 19th Medical Group and Child Development Centers may have different protocols in effect.

Availability of Bivalent COVID-10 Vaccine

1. On August 31, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration amended the emergency use authorizations (EUAs) of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and the Pfizer-Biotech COVID-19 Vaccine to authorize bivalent formulations of the vaccines for use as a single booster dose at least two months following primary or booster vaccination. The bivalent vaccines, which we will also refer to as “updated boosters,” contain two messenger RNA (mRNA) components of SARS-CoV-2 virus, one of the original strain of SARS-CoV-2 and the other one in common between the BA.4 and BA.5 lineages of the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2.

2. The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent, is authorized for use as a single booster dose in individuals 18 years of age and older. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent, is authorized for use as a single booster dose in individuals 12 years of age and older.

3. The monovalent mRNA are no longer authorized as booster doses for individuals 12 years of age and older. As a result, the 19 MDG Immunization Clinic will no longer provide boosters of the monovalent COVID-19 vaccine to active duty personnel and dependents 12 years of age and older. 

4. The 19 MDG Immunization Clinic is now offering both Moderna and Pfizer bivalent boosters on Thursdays and Fridays. We will continue to provide the monovalent Moderna and Pfizer vaccine for those requiring an initial vaccination series.

Unit Commanders may impose additional restrictions, as necessary, to protect their force and mission.
