CBIRF Remembers Operation Tomodachi

CBIRF Marines, Sailors Vaccinated - INDIAN HEAD, Md. (13 Jan. 2021) - Marines and Sailors assigned to the Chemical Biological Incident Response Force (CBIRF) at Naval Support Facility Indian Head received first doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine during a large-scale immunization exercise January 13 with support from the Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Unit Indian Head. With members of the command watching, CBIRF leadership volunteered to receive the vaccine first and encouraged all Marines and Sailors to follow their example. The unit’s critical support for national security missions make distributing precious vaccines to all members of the command a top priority. “As we continue to safeguard ourselves and our families from this virus, getting this safe and effective vaccine is an important step because we are preserving the force and enhancing mission readiness,” said CBIRF Commanding Officer Col. Donald Riley. “In getting the shots, we are regaining our freedom of movement and setting an example for our Marines and Sailors, their families and the American people. I thank everyone who has stepped up to get the vaccine and helped minimize the risk to our force, our families and loved ones.”
