The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that most children be vaccinated against tetanus, diphtheria, hepatitis B, and measles, mumps and rubella (all in one shot!)
All of these diseases can cause serious health problems … and many schools won’t allow children to attend unless they are current on their vaccinations.
TRICARE will cover all age-appropriate CDC recommended vaccinations.
Begin planning now for your child’s seasonal flu shot. Nine out of 10 healthy people who get one, don’t get the flu — and TRICARE covers these vaccinations, too.
Always double check your information in DEERS and make sure everything is current.
Bring your military I.D. card: This is what the doctor’s office will use to confirm your TRICARE eligibility. And it’s OK if the staff at the office copy it.
Look up your health care provider’s information on TriWest.com. Registered users can view their primary care manager’s information online, before running to the doctor’s office!
