 2014/2015 Seasonal Flu Information

  

It’s time again to receive your Seasonal Flu Vaccine.

Flu season can run from early October through late May. Every flu season is different because the viruses change. That is why Kenner recommends getting your annual influenza vaccination each year. Getting immunized provides the best protection against influenza infection.

The flu vaccine is now available to all beneficiaries enrolled at Kenner Army Health Clinic for care.

Wilkerson Pediatric Clinic immunizations, walk- in hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 7:30 -11:00 a.m. and 1:15 - 3:15 p.m. and Thursdays07:30-11:00 a.m.only.

The Family Medicine Clinic adult immunizations, walk-hours are Monday thru Friday 7:15 - 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 - 3:15 p.m. No vaccinations are given in the Family Medicine Clinic after 1130 a.m. on the first Thursday of each month.

BACKGROUND: A DoD directive states that 90% of all active duty must be immunized with the influenza vaccine NLT 15 December 2014.

WHAT KENNER WILL OFFER: Kenner will support tenant units by hosting multiple flu clinics on weekdays and weekends. In order to utilize our resources most efficiently, while minimizing loss of student POI time, ensuring accountability and meeting our vaccination goal, we ask that each unit coordinate one (1) dedicated session with our POCs (SGT Phyllis Youngblood; phyllis.I.youngblood.mil@mail.mil  ).

To ensure military personnel from each unit receive the influenza vaccination in accordance with the OTSG Directive, we need to coordinate unit influenza vaccinations as early as possible due to delayed shipment of the influenza vaccine. Sessions will be coordinated and offered based on unit size. Smaller sized units can be accommodated on a weekday morning or evening.

We understand that individual personnel may be unable to comply with their assigned date for a number of reasons. We will coordinate an alternate session to catch those few Soldiers who cannot attend a prescheduled unit wide session.

We urge your Soldiers not go to your local pharmacy to obtain the flu vaccine, and coordinate with the POCs below instead.

DOD Civilians:  Occupational Health Clinic, Kenner Army Health Clinic will start immunizing DoD Civilians, every Wednesday, beginning Oct 29, from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Preventive Medicine Classroom, B201(second floor of Kenner Main). 

CAC card and the attached form completed is required when you present.

CIVILIANS: Eligible beneficiaries may obtain their immunizations at Kenner during regular immunization clinic hours starting date estimated to be around late October. By separating civilians from military, it will avoid delays in processing active duty during their assignment times. All NON-beneficiaries should seek guidance from their Primary Care Provider for information regarding their Flu Vaccination.  

POINTS OF CONTACT: In order to assist us in getting your unit scheduled, we ask that you contact the Kenner Flu Team organizers:
