Blanchfield will begin surveying about 14,000 high-risk healthcare beneficiaries through an automated phone survey starting January 7 and into the next several weeks to assess their preference for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

At this time, no appointments are being scheduled for beneficiaries to receive the vaccine.
Beneficiaries will be alerted to when and how they can make appointments once the vaccine is available to them.

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 at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital.

Active Duty Service Members (ADSMs): 

Active duty and Guard/Reserve members are required to get the flu vaccine.
The flu vaccine is offered to Active duty service member within their unit's medical home:
  • Each brigade hosts a Flu Vaccine rodeo. Service members should be given information about where and when these flu vaccine events occur.
  • If an Active duty service member is unable to receive the Flu vaccine during their unit's rodeo, Soldiers may schedule an appointment using TRICAREonline.com to receive thei flu vaccine within LaPointe Soldier Medical Home. Do you have the vaccine available at the MTF for ADSMs? If not, what local TRICARE network pharmacies or providers can the ADSM go to, to receive the vaccination?
  • Are appointments required, or walk-ins available? What is the best way for an ADSM to make an appointment?
  • If walk-ins are available, at which pharmacy location?
When you get a flu vaccine from anywhere besides Blanchfield Army Community Hospital's medical homes, be sure to provide the following details to your provider so the vaccine can be documented in your shot record.

There are a number of pharmacies off post that offer this service. Beneficiaries can visit https://tricare.mil/flu to find a TRICARE network pharmacy near them.
