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 US Naval Hospital, Okinawa.

Active Duty Service Members (ADSMs), Active Duty Family Members (ADFMs), and Other Beneficiaries:

Active Duty and Guard/Reserve members are required to get the flu vaccine.

In the midst of the Covid-19 global pandemic, U.S. Naval Hospital Okinawa, Japan is requiring appointments for immunizations in order to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff. This measure decreases the amount of people in small, enclosed waiting areas and ensures appropriate social distancing.
Our immunization clinic can accommodate a same day appointment if you are already at a scheduled Pediatric, Family, Internal Medicine, OB-Gyn, and Internal Medicine appointment at the hospital.

You can get your Influenza vaccination on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7:30 am to 3:50 pm or on Thursday from 7:30 am to noon. The immunizations clinic is in the main hospital (building 960) on the second floor inside Pediatrics.
To schedule an appointment, please call 646-WELL (option 1, option 4). If you are using a cellular phone, dial 098-971-WELL (option 1, option 4).

When you get a flu vaccine from anywhere besides US Naval Hospital Okinawa (or one of its Branch Medical Clinics), follow your Service policy guidance for recording the vaccine in your shot record. You'll need the following information:
  • The date the vaccine was given
  • The vaccine name or code
  • Manufacturer
  • Lot number

 

Other Options for Getting the Flu Vaccine

If you're unable to get the flu vaccine here, you can visit any participating network pharmacy or TRICARE-authorized (civilian) provider. Visit https://www.tricare.mil/flu to learn more.
