It’s flu season. Are you ready? 
More than 118 million doses of 2015-16 flu vaccine have been distributed so far. This season’s vaccines have been updated to better match circulating viruses. CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older. While how well the vaccine works can vary, flu vaccine is the best way to protect against flu. Vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors' visits, and missed work and school, as well as prevent hospitalizations. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for protection to set in, making now the perfect time to get vaccinated.
Naval Health Clinic Quantico (NHCQ) is now offering seasonal influenza (flu) vaccinations for all active duty military members, TRICARE beneficiaries, Department of Defense (DoD) civilians where influenza vaccination is written in their position description as a condition of employment, DoD civilians and contractors specifically required to be immunized for continuity of operations, reservists, and foreign military members. Stop by the clinic and get yours today!
Flu vaccine will be administrated at NHCQ Mainside Immunizations Clinic, located on the first floor, Hallway F, during the hours of 0730 and 1530, Monday through Friday.  TBS personnel can visit the TBS Clinic between 0800 and 1530.  WNY BHC personnel can visit these clinics from 0700-1500. All other DoD civilians requesting vaccination at the clinic will be required to complete a DD Form 2569, Other Health Insurance (OHI) or present OHI card before receiving immunization.  For more information regarding influenza and vaccinations call:

MCB Command/Unit representatives can contact the Influenza Shot Exercise Coordinator to set up a visit from a mobile vaccinations team to conduct influenza vaccination exercises for their active duty military personnel.  Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for unit commanders to meet the 90 percent objective for active duty by early December 2015.  By coordinating vaccination evolutions at work centers we help limit the loss of manpower, increase medical readiness, and ensure the health protection of our population.
