What do I need to bring?

Documentation is an important part of your visit so that you receive the correct immunizations at the correct time. Any valid form of immunization history is accepted. If you have a shot card, please bring it with you and we will be more than happy to update it for you.
 

Do I need an appointment?

We see all patients on a walk-in basis. Children up to six years of age need to have a current Well-Baby exam prior to receiving immunizations.
 

How long is the wait?

There is some paperwork that must be done for each patient. Each record is screened completely. Sometimes, it takes more than one corpsman to care for a patient at a time, e.g. children. Wait times may vary depending on the amount of screening per patient, as well as the immunization record availability. Please ensure to bring vaccination records to every visit. During Flu Season, extended wait times may be experienced.
 

What is the best time to come?

Give yourself enough time in case there is a wait. Make every effort to be on time for your medical appointment, and you will be able to move in and out of immunizations more quickly.
 

When will I need my next shots?

After receiving service in the clinic, you will always be told when to return. Active Duty have a schedule to follow that remains constant during their service. Command sponsored dependents and school-aged children have simple requirements that can be provided to you in writing from the clinic.
 

When will my PPD be read?

All PPD’s are read within 48-72 hours as per BUMEDINST 6224.8. It must be read in person by Immunizations staff for documentation accuracy and consistency (unless otherwise arranged).
 

What if I am PPD positive?

Positive results may vary depending on the individuals risk category (reference BUMEDINSTR6224.8). Again, it must be read in person in order to measure the site. At some time, you may have been exposed to or come in contact with someone with Tuberculosis. We have further tests we need to do in order to assess your overall health. There is also medication that may need to be given over an extended period of time. Individuals who have prior BCG vaccination will still receive PPD. Our staff is highly trained and competent and are happy to assist and educate you in this manner.
 

How do I get a new "shot card?"

The PHS-731 (yellow shot card) is available to all who desire it. Just bring us the medical record and any other verifying information to prove vaccination history and fill out a request. Copies are only accepted ‘certified’. All immunizations must have dates and signatures to be valid. In some cases, other research can be done to verify immunization history. We ask you to allow 7-10 days to process this request and we will call you when it is complete.
 

Can I just have someone look at my child’s record?

Each patient’s record is screened for completion and accuracy. With this in mind, it is important that the corpsman screening records be allowed to do so. Please do your best to save your questions until you are called so that each patient can be given the full attention they deserve, and the risk of mistakes reduced.
 

Can I have a friend bring in my child?

In the event you do not have the ability to provide care for your child due to absence, you can obtain an “IN LOCO PARENTIS” or “Power of Attorney” in the name of the child for a guardian. This documentation must be presented at time of service, and should be put into the medical record as well.
