COVID Symptom Checker

COVID-19 affects people in different ways. Infected people have reported a wide range of symptoms–from mild symptoms to severe illness. Do you think you may have COVID-19?

If your assessment instructs you to seek emergency care:

  • Dial 911. Tell the 911 dispatcher that you may have COVID-19.
  • Go to the emergency roomThe hospital department that provides emergency services to patients who need immediate medical attention.. If you can, call ahead to tell them you may have COVID-19.

Your assessment may also show you have symptoms associated with COVID-19. If you’re concerned about these symptoms or any non-COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have other health questions, you can:

  • Call the MHS Nurse Advice Line at 1-800-TRICARE (874-2273), option 1.
  • Contact your primary care manager or your regional contractor. You can use secure messaging, if available.
  • Call your military hospital or clinic hotline for advice.
  • Call your military hospital or clinic appointment line and ask to speak with your team nurse.
  • Schedule a virtual appointment with your primary care manager using the TOL Patient Portal. Many civilian providers offer virtual telehealth appointments, too.

At the recommendation of the FDA and CDC, the Department of Defense is immediately pausing the use of the Janssen vaccine (also known as the J&J vaccine). The safety of our force and their families is a top priority for the Department. We are communicating this pause to our military health facilities and are reviewing our global vaccine distribution to address this issue and ensure we can continue to provide vaccines to our DoD population at home and abroad.

At this time, we do not know how long the pause will last. We will continue to communicate to the force as we learn more.

There’s no cost for the COVID-19 vaccine itself. But there may be a cost based on your health plan for an office visit with a provider, or if you require follow-on care. >>Learn more
