Get Your Physical and Immunizations Before the OCONUS Move

If you are assigned to a position with specific physical and or medical standards you must pass a physical examination.

Whenever possible, the examination will be at a DoD medical facility. If immunizations are required, arrangements will be made for you and your dependents to receive the necessary immunizations. There is no cost to you when these services are provided at a DoD medical facility.

If you are unable to receive immunizations at a DoD facility, any reasonable cost incurred for required immunizations will be reimbursed if claimed on a travel claim voucher as a miscellaneous expense.

Except for necessary immunizations required for overseas travel, you pay the cost of all medical examinations and/or treatments for your dependents.
