Flu Vaccine Availability

With the COVID-19 pandemic still affecting nearly all aspects of our daily lives, this year’s cold and flu season will be unlike any other. It’s crucial that eligible beneficiaries get their flu vaccine. If the flu vaccine is not yet available at your local MTF, there are other options. Call your MTF first for options available to you.

The TRICARE flu website has information on no-cost and co-pay options should you decide to go out to the retail pharmacy network for your flu vaccination.
