The first COVID-19 mass vaccination on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii is held on Feb. 9, 2021. The Army says it will "immediately begin separating Soldiers from the service" who refuse to be vaccinated.

“Unvaccinated Soldiers present risk to the force and jeopardize readiness,” Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth says. The Army says 96% of active troops have been vaccinated.
