Contrary to some reports out there, the 75th Medical Group does not have the H1N1 vaccine; however it is expected to start receiving shipments of the vaccine sometime in late November to early December. Now is a great time to get vaccinated for the seasonal flu. It's relatively early in the flu season, (as the normal flu season runs from August to April), and seasonal influenza mist and shots are both available to all Tricare beneficiaries, while supplies last. The immunizations clinic will individually screen customers to determine the form of vaccination needed.
Where can I get the H1N1 vaccine?
The novel H1N1 influenza vaccine is now available at select clinics and providers off base. While there is no charge for H1N1 vaccine, there may be a small fee for giving the vaccine. Please contact the desired clinic for more information about vaccine availability and fees before traveling to the clinic.
Also, call or visit your local health department Web site for information on H1N1 vaccine availability.
