So should we look at requiring proof of vaccination & a negative test for activities like encampment?

I say yes, but I'm interested in other viewpoints.

I've never been a beta tester for software. I let everyone else get the early buggy versions. Then when its settled out, I go for it.

Informed consent also means knowing that all COVID vaccine manufacturers have been exempted from liability by Congress if you have a significant reaction to the virus, and that Congress exempted all COVID vaccines from receiving protection from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. It is instead covered by the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program.

A difference between the two programs can be reviewed here:

A news article explaining some concerns with CICP:

A specific section of the FAQ on COVID:

A deep dive into vaccines, vaccination policies, and making judgements on the different vaccines out there can be found in the following CDC modules:

If you have an adverse effect from a vaccine, you are encouraged to report it.

For an example on how, see this blurb from the Moderna EUA Fact Sheet:
Report vaccine side effects to FDA/CDC Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System
(VAERS). The VAERS toll-free number is 1-800-822-7967 or report online to
https://vaers.hhs.gov/reportevent.html. Please include "Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine EUA" in
the first line of box #18 of the report form.

In addition, you can report side effects to ModernaTX, Inc. at 1-866-MODERNA (1-866-663-
3762).

You may also be given an option to enroll in v-safe. V-safe is a new voluntary smartphone-based
tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to check in with people who have been vaccinated
to identify potential side effects after COVID-19 vaccination. V-safe asks questions that help
CDC monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines. V-safe also provides second-dose reminders if
needed and live telephone follow-up by CDC if participants report a significant health impact
following COVID-19 vaccination. For more information on how to sign up, visit:
www.cdc.gov/vsafe

Our unit will receive 70 boxes of ABU items from AAFES tomorrow. This is in response to the AF memo that allows AF organizations to transfer their ABU pattern uniform items to CAP. Our unit also received a large amount of items from the base Logistics Readiness Squadron stocks.

I know many wings are coordinating with AAFES and other AF organizations for distro of ABU items but I wanted to send pictures to show that it is actually happening!

As a side note, and not the main purpose of this post, the AF also has thousands of pairs of sage green boots that are availableSAF MR SIGNED RELEASE OF ABUs 2020.pdfAAFES ABU tranfer.pdf.

Quote from: GroundHawg on January 11, 2021, 04:20:53 pmI think that if I were to order a CAP only ribbon rack, that they would probably be good to go. However, when I add in military, civilian, and foreign awards they are in the wrong order or they incorrectly tell me that the ribbon/medal isn't authorized for wear.

I have never had an order of precedence issue, but have repeatedly run into the "This is not authorized" problem.  It would be so easy for them to give an option to turn the checker of for those of use who actually know what the regulations say.  You can still work around it though - you just add some other ribbon as a placeholder where the supposedly unauthorized ribbon is supposed to to go and tell them in the notes to change it.  And then to be safe call them on the phone to make sure they fix it.

Telling them what you really want in the Notes block usually clears things up.
And they're pretty good about e-mailing/calling if they have a question.
