H1N1 Flu Vaccination Requirement

All facilities that provide seasonal influenza vaccine for Department of Defense (DoD) beneficiaries will be required to also administer the new 2009 H1N1 vaccine.

The H1N1 vaccine, pending approval by the Food and Drug Administration, is scheduled to be available in October.

Vaccine for active duty members will be provided by the Department of Defense through supply chains similar to seasonal flu vaccine. 2009 H1N1 vaccine for dependents and retirees who normally get their flu vaccine at DoD facilities will be provided through a Department of Health and Human Services allocation to each state. To get vaccine for this part of your population, each facility must register as a vaccine provider with the state(s) in which your population resides. Each state has an online registration form.

All forms can be found at www.cdc.gov.
