Flu Vaccine Availability

The seasonal influenza vaccine is recommended every year for everyone 6 months of age and older with rare exceptions. People at high risk for influenza complications include infants, young children, pregnant women, adults 65 and older, nursing home or long-term care facility residents, and those with underlying health conditions.

Pending the availability of the influenza vaccine at the Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center, all Military Health System beneficiaries (Service members and their dependents) can also get the flu shot through a participating network pharmacy. The flu vaccine is covered by TRICARE with no cost-shares or copayments if it’s administered by a pharmacist at a participating network pharmacy or by a TRICARE-authorized provider at a participating network onsite clinic.

To find a participating network pharmacy:

Be sure to call the pharmacy first to:

  • Verify the days and times can you get the vaccine.
  •  See if there any restrictions, including for children.
  • Make sure the pharmacy has the vaccine you need.
  • Make sure a pharmacist gives the vaccines and not a provider to avoid potential out-of-pocket costs.

Did you know TRICARE covers age-appropriate doses of vaccines, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)?
