Flu shots still available at base medical facilities
Every fall as the temperature drops and flu season begins, base hospitals and clinics run special immunization campaigns. This fall was no exception.
But military health officials want personnel to know that although the campaigns are wrapped up at bases in Japan, shots are still available at base medical facilities.
Flu shots are available on a walk in basis to all military and civilian personnel and family members eligible to receive care at U.S. military facilities in Japan.
The shots are free for patients covered under the Tricare system. Medical clinics will bill private insurers.
