Flu vaccinations start Nov. 6

Starting Nov. 6, the Naval Branch Health Clinic (NBHC) Port Hueneme will be giving family members and eligible beneficiaries influenza vaccines at the NBHC Port Hueneme immunization clinic and Preventive Medicine Office every Tuesday and Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m.

Several community immunization clinics are also scheduled at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC).

For NBVC Port Hueneme, the flu vaccines will be administered Nov. 6, 13 and 20 from 9 to 11 a.m. near the entrance of Navy Exchange.

At NBVC Point Mugu, the flu vaccines will be available Nov. 8 and 15 from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Point Mugu Theater.

Vaccinations are being provided to all military personnel, dependents, retirees, mission-essential or mission-critical Department of Defense (DoD) civilians and contract employees. Depending on vaccination availability, vaccinations may also be given to other DoD civilians.

The influenza vaccine is a one-dose combo of seasonal influenza and H1N1 virus strains that will be given either in nasal mist or injectible shot.

While everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine each flu season, it’s especially important that the following groups get vaccinated either because they are at high risk of having serious flu-related complications or because they live with or care for people at high risk for developing flu-related complications: pregnant women; children younger than 5, especially children younger than 2; people 50 and older; people of any age with certain chronic medical conditions; people who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities; and people who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from flu.

For any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the following offices: Preventive Medicine Division at 805-982-6358; Occupational and Environmental Health Department at 805-982-6434 and Naval Branch Health Clinic Port Hueneme at 805-982-6321.
