Novel H1N1 vaccination program to begin
Army announces plans; expects vaccine by end of October

HEIDELBERG, Germany –Local plans for administering the H1N1 Influenza vaccine have been finalized, and the vaccine will arrive in stages beginning this month, according to COL Theresa Moser, director, Force Health Protection, Europe Regional Medical Command.

“Deployed or deploying troops and health care personnel will be vaccinated first, followed by individuals at higher risk,” she said, explaining the details of the plan. Follow-on H1N1 supplies will be available for family members and other beneficiaries.

As H1N1 vaccine becomes available, the Europe Regional Medical Command and local health clinics will notify garrison and unit leadership and local AFN outlets, Moser said.

“As we have more details, we will release that information to unit commanders, our clinics, and military communities,” Moser said.
