Also in the news,
Don’t forget to a flu shot this year if you haven’t done so already. The Department of Defense goal is to have 90 percent of all personnel vaccinated no later than December 15th. All active-duty members are eligible to use all TriCare authorized pharmacies at no cost. Also make sure to deliver any vaccination documentation to the appropriate medical personnel so that it can be updated in your medical record.
