Hot Topics in Preventive Medicine:


We are starting to receive our flu vaccine shipments and we are distributing the early doses in accordance with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Department of Defense (DoD) guidance.  Our first priorities are Deploying service members, Medically high risk patients (as determined by their Primary Care Manager), Healthcare staff, and Emergency essential employees.

We will be scheduling Active Duty Flu Vaccine Clinics at each of the commands. Squadrons should work with their Flight Surgeons or Aviation Corpsmen to coordinate their Flu Vaccine Clinics. Shore Commands will be scheduled through Preventive Medicine.

Preventive Medicine will also be coordinating Beneficiary Flu Vaccine Clinics at the hospital in the near future.  Please check back for updates.  These Clinics will be widely advertised as more of our vaccine order arrives.
