Just another month and it will be that time of the year again, the dreaded Flu Season. The flu, which is highly contagious, can be deadly and has resulted in nearly 50,000 deaths annually.  Help us serve you to protect yourself, your family and fellow by obtaining your annual flu vaccination as required per Air Force policy.

The seasonal flu is a highly contagious respiratory illness caused by flu viruses that can cause mild to severe illness and in some cases can lead to death. You can acquire and spread the virus to other unit members, friends, and family.  In addition to serious illness, the flu can significantly decrease unit readiness and impede mission accomplishment.

The 452 AMW Vaccination Team, supported by all medical units on base, will strive to serve you in obtaining your flu vaccination in a timely manner. Our goal is to provide flu vaccinations to 95 percent of participating personnel base-wide by the end of the December Unit Training Assembly. In addition to the usual 452 AMDS clinic hours, the 452 AMW Vaccination Team will be hosting the annual Mass Immunization Site and a Wing Commander’s Call Mobile Shot Team. Times and locations will be announced as they become available.

Let’s all do our part at making this year’s Flu Campaign a huge success. Please take the time to obtain your flu vaccination, thus protecting yourself and others around you.
