Influenza Vaccine Update 

Flu season is upon us. We are concerned about your health and encourage everyone to get vaccinated annually against influenza.

It’s critical that everyone who is able receives a flu vaccine. It’s essential that active duty service members, active duty family members and other beneficiaries are well-protected from influenza.

Please see the guidance below for getting the flu vaccine here at the 10th Medical Group located on the United States Air Force Academy.

Active Duty Service Members (ADSMs):

Active duty and Guard/Reserve members are required to get the flu vaccine.
  • The 10th Medical Group has flu vaccines available for ADSMs 
  • All immunizations/vaccines are by appointment only - book your Immunizations Clinic appointment online at www.tricareonline.com or call the access to care line at (719) 524-2273, option 1
Using TRICARE Online, select the “Immunization” appointment option as shown. 
 

When you get a flu vaccine from anywhere besides the 10th Medical Group, please bring a copy of your receipt to the Immunizations Clinic.  There is a drop box in the Immunizations Clinic lobby or give your receipt to our clinic staff.  Your vaccine will be updated into your medical record within 24 hours.
