Installations around Honolulu, Hawaii will hold a mass flu vaccination exercise, Sept. 18-20, with the goal of vaccinating as many Oahu-based active duty servicemembers and emergency-essential civilians as possible. Drivers may experience traffic delays or reduced parking around mass vaccination sites. Patients visiting clinics on post may experience longer waiting times due to reduced medical personnel. Vaccines will be available to all Tricare beneficiaries at military medical treatment facilities in Hawaii starting Sept. 21. Vaccines will be available at post exchanges throughout October and local schools in October and November. For more information, visit the Oahu Flu Vaccination brochure, the Tripler Fight the Flu webpage, the Flu Shot-Inactivated Influenza Information Sheet, and the Flu Mist-Live Intranasal Influenza Vaccination Info Sheet.
