SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. --
Since the start of the pandemic, the 618th Air Operations Center has been a leader in transporting more than 50,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses and over 500 associated kits to DoD employees overseas.
Through these efforts, Airmen serving abroad have had access to the COVID-19 vaccine and, as a result, can best protect themselves and their mission against the effects of the virus. AOC personnel work around the clock to assess cargo requirements, airfield capabilities, and aircraft availability to determine the best means for supporting missions just like these, every single day.
The 618 AOC is proud to support the health and wellness of our warfighters around the world, and will continue to lead from the front when supporting the DoD's pandemic response efforts.
