We 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.

Flu vaccinations are free and available on a walk-in basis. Call ahead Mon-Fri, 0800-1600, to ensure availability: 301-295-4511, Option 3.
If you're unable to get the flu vaccine here, you can visit any participating network pharmacy or TRICARE-authorized (civilian) provider. Visit the TRICARE website to learn more.
Active Duty and Guard/Reserve members are required to get the flu vaccine. When you get a flu vaccine from anywhere besides WRNMMC, follow your Service policy guidance for recording the vaccine in your shot record. You'll need the following information:
  • The date the vaccine was given
  • The vaccine name or code
  • Manufacturer
  • Lot number
