Flu Vaccine Requirement

Fact about flu

Flu Vaccine is a DoDEA Requirement for School Attendance!

- The immunization clinic will be administering flu vaccine starting October 7rd to active members and high risk individuals - those who are pregnant, postpartum (to 6 months), aged 5 and under, aged 65 and older or who have chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, cancer or other serious chronic health conditions.

- Fast Track Dates (attendance for this event is highly encouraged!!) The whole family can go to get vaccinated. There will be extra personnel in the clinic to make your wait minimal. As an extra bonus, students who attend "fast track days" will have their shot records sent directly to the school.

21 October 0730 to 1800 (No school for DoDEA or UK students)

23 October 1300 to 1800 (Early release for DoDEA schools)

- After the above efforts, the clinic will be available for all remaining beneficiaries to come to the immunizations clinic to receive their vaccines. Walk-in hours are 0730-1630 every day (except training days and Tuesdays when they close at 1515).
