Influenza Immunization Information
2010/2011 FLU SHOT UPDATE
CDC/ATSDR Commissioned Corps Officers
Current Commissioned Corps policy regarding seasonal influenza immunizations for readiness states that every officer (excluding those with specific waivers or exemptions) receive their seasonal influenza immunization during the last quarter of the calendar year (1 October - 31 December), with the goal of conferring protection throughout the fall and winter. If officers are able to obtain their seasonal influenza immunization in September, OFRD will accept this as meeting the seasonal influenza immunization readiness requirement.
Thus, officers obtaining and documenting the seasonal influenza immunization between 1 September and 31 December will be deemed in compliance with this annual readiness component.
Flu Shot Documentation
You must submit proof of immunization using the attached fax cover sheet to MAB at 301-594-3299.
CDC's Occupational Health Clinic will provide a flu shot record to each officer following the administration of the shot, upon request. It is the officer’s responsibility to request documentation of the vaccination. The flu shot record should be available at every flu shot open house or clinic walk-ins. It is attached here for your convenience.
Please contact the Commissioned Corps Personnel Office at (404) 498-1800 with any questions/concerns.
