Things to Know

1. You must have a DHA Appointing app appointment in order to receive a vaccine on the scheduled dates. Please do not show up if you were unable to secure an appointment.

Click here for a guide to making an appointment.

** Appointments booked in the Tricare Online Patient portal are not for COVID 19 Vaccination. **

2. You must be registered in the DEERS system to receive a vaccine. We cannot administer the vaccine without creating an encounter in your electronic medical record. DEERS enrollment must be complete before we can register you at U.S. Army Health Clinic Stuttgart. Register at any community ID card office (Kelley Barracks is currently closed). **We cannot register you in DEERS at the vaccination site.**

Please note that if you have a military ID card, you are already enrolled in DEERS.

3. You must be enrolled at U.S. Army Health Clinic Stuttgart in order for the medical team to document your vaccination in your electronic medical record. Please present in person to the Patient Administration Section of U.S. Army Health Clinic Stuttgart prior to your vaccine appointment date. The hours are 7:30 am to 11:00 am.

If you are not enrolled, this is something that we can do at the vaccination site, but it will delay your appointment. (Even if you are do not receive regular care at the clinic, you are already registered if you have had a COVID test or flu shot there)

4. Prior to presenting for your COVID 19 Vaccine appointment, please read the Emergency Use Authorization information sheet for the vaccine you will be receiving (Moderna or Janssen) and complete the following documents:

5. SECOND DOSE Appointments in the DHA Appointing app are ONLY for those patients who received their first dose of either the SARS-COV-2 Moderna or Biontech/Pfizer vaccine at another location (ie. PCS from CONUS, received first dose at another location, missed scheduled second dose in Stuttgart military community) and need a second dose. This is NOT for patients who received their first dose in the Stuttgart military community and have not missed their scheduled second dose as they will be automatically scheduled by the clinic and sent an automated appointment reminder.


Frequently Asked Questions

COVID Vaccination

U.S. Citizens aged 18 or older (with installation access) are eligible. Vaccinations are not available for individuals not associated with the military community.

Vaccine recipients must be registered in DEERS (the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System) and enrolled at U.S. Army Health Clinic Stuttgart (but do not need to be Tricare recipients or receive regular care there).

Not at this time. Installation access is required, and vaccinations are not available for individuals not associated with the military community.

Yes, as long as they are enrolled in DEERS and registered at U.S. Army Health Clinic Stuttgart.

No, but you do need to be registered with the U.S. Army Health Clinic Stuttgart in order for the medical team to provide and document your vaccination. You are already registered if you receive care at the clinic or have had a COVID test or flu shot there.

If you are not enrolled to the clinic and have never had any service provided by the clinic, please visit the Patient Administration Section (open 7:30-11:00 a.m.) of the health clinic prior to your vaccine appointment date.

Clinic enrollment can be done at the vaccination site if necessary, but will cause delays. If possible, please enroll prior to arriving for vaccination in order to expedite the process for yourself and all other appointment holders.

DEERS is the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System: a database of information on uniformed services members, U.S.-sponsored foreign military, DoD and uniformed services civilians, other personnel as directed by the DoD, and their family members.

If you have a U.S. military I.D. card and have Stuttgart installation access, you are registered in DEERS.

If you are not registered in DEERS, you will need to do so before you can be enrolled at U.S. Army Health Clinic Stuttgart. Please contact an ID card office for instructions.

You must cancel your vaccination appointment in the DHA appointing app and schedule a new vaccination appointment within the DHA appointing app. Please keep in mind that if you have more than one appointment scheduled in the app when you hit cancel, the most recently booked appointment will be canceled.

All official appointments will be followed up with an appointment confirmation from the clinic either via a telephone call or an email.

If you have not received any contact by 4:30 pm on 21 April 2021 for all appointments scheduled in the DHA Appointing app on 20 April 2021, your appointment may not be valid.

Appointments booked after 20 April 2021 will be confirmed either via email or a telephone call within 48 hours of registering for the appointment.

No, appointments can only be made through the online DHA appointing tool.

No, not if you received your first dose in Stuttgart. Whether your initial vaccination was made through a clinic/unit-organized cohort or through the online appointment system, you should not book a second dose through the appointment system. This option is only for individuals who have received their first dose somewhere else and must complete the vaccination schedule.

If you received your first dose in the Stuttgart military community, the clinic is tracking the date you will need your second dose and will contact you prior to it.

Yes, you can. Use the “Second Dose” option on the online appointing tool. Second doses can be provided for the Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech vaccinations, but not the Astrazeneca or one-dose Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccinations. Bring your CDC Vaccination Record Card.

Vaccinations will take place at either the Patch Theater, Kelley Theater/Building 3307, the Robinson Barracks Fitness/Childcare Center, or near the garrison headquarters building (2949) on Panzer Kaserne.

Please check your confirmation for the location of your appointment.

Everyone must complete DHA Form 207 – COVID Vaccine Screening and Immunization Documentation.

Additionally, all civilians, including military dependents, must complete forms DD 2870 – Authorization for Disclosure of Medical/Dental Information and DD 2569 – Third Party Insurance Collection.

Before getting your vaccination, please view the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccination Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) Fact Sheet or the informational video located here.

If at all possible, please bring completed documentation with you in order to expedite the process for yourself and all other appointment holders. Otherwise, documentation will be available on site if necessary.

Military Treatment Facilities in Europe are currently allocated vaccine supplies based on the numbers of beneficiaries they serve and the numbers of other eligible recipients within their surrounding communities. For this reason, we encourage TRICARE beneficiaries to receive the vaccine at the clinic they are enrolled for primary care (i.e. if your PCM is at the Stuttgart clinic, you should first try to schedule your appointment at the Stuttgart clinic before scheduling an appointment elsewhere.)

However, the Defense Health Agency has announced that beneficiaries can now receive the vaccine at any military hospital, clinic or DoD vaccination site that offers the vaccine, even if it’s not where you normally get care.

Yes. If you submitted a high risk screening form but have not been contacted by the clinic, you should book an appointment using the appointing tool if one is available.

ONLY use the website linked on the Stuttgart Citizen (https://informatics-stage.health.mil/COVAX/), and select “Germany” and “U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart” through the menu there.

Booking through another link could result in the user scheduling an unregistered appointment while the system is offline.

All official appointments will be followed up with an appointment confirmation from the clinic either via a telephone call or an email within 48 hours after being made.

If you are a directly employed (i.e., not contractor) local national employee, please contact your supervisory chain if you are interested in being vaccinated.

As of May 7, not yet.

However, following the extension of the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine to include those under age 18, Regional Health Command Europe is working to bring a limited supply of this vaccine to the military community in Europe, specifically for the adolescent population.

The EUA currently includes 16 and 17 year olds, and if is extended to the 12-15 year olds, then this age group would become eligible for vaccination as well.

Details of the plan are still being finalized, and further information will be released when it is confirmed.
