The US Army is currently looking into how several personnel at Joint Base Lewis-McChord recieved “accidental” COVID-19 vaccinations, a bad look as the military’s relationship with the vaccine continues to become a hotbed political topic.

According to Colonel Joey Sullinger of I Corps Public Affairs, “Joint Base Lewis-McChord is aware three people were inadvertently administered the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine instead of another vaccine at the Lewis Main Exchange.”

The colonel noted that “Positive corrective action has been taken at this vaccination site to prevent such errors from happening again,” and that “Army medical professionals are notifying and ensuring the health and welfare of those affected. This incident is under investigation.”

The information was first shared on October 26 by TerminalCWO, a social media meme account. As with many of these kinds of accounts, it is unknown how the information was obtained.

The Army Times, who initially received the information from said meme account, noted that Joint Base Lewis-McChord is home to I Corps and 62d Airlift Wing.

Naturally, TerminalCWO account operators were tight-lipped on the nature of their sources, one of the many reasons such accounts are often the first to get information on controversial matters.
