All Marines, active and reserve, are due for a flu shot unless they are medically exempt, according to new Defense Department guidelines.
所有現役和後備的陸戰隊員,都到期注射流感疫苗,除非得到醫生豁免,根據新的國防部指引。
“Comprehensive prevention measures must be enforced by Marine Corps leaders to prevent potential adverse operational consequences of influenza,” according to the guidelines authorized for public release by Lt. Gen. R.T. Tryon, deputy commandant for plans, policies and operations.
“綜合預防措施必須由海軍陸戰隊的領導人執行,以防止潛在的流感不利行動後果”,根據由規劃、政策和行動副指揮官RT特賴恩中將授權的公眾公佈指引。
The shot includes a vaccine for the 2009 h1n1 pandemic strain as one of three seasonal influenza components. Marines with a known allergic reaction and certain clinical conditions will be exempt.
注射包括一2009年為H1N1流行病毒的疫苗,作為三份一的季節性流感的組成部分。海軍陸戰隊員有已知的過敏性反應和某些臨床情況將獲豁免。
DOD civilian employees, military retirees and family members are encouraged to receive the flu shot, based on available supply, age and those with higher risk of health complications arising from influenza.

Naval Hospital is ahead of the flu curve so it will be able to take care of its beneficiary population, said Lt. Cmdr. Matt Mercer, the environmental health officer with the hospital’s Preventive Medicine Department.

“On the whole, not seeing a lot of flu,” he said. “There have been no major outbreaks.”

The flu that is spreading matches up well with the vaccine so it has been effective, Mercer said.

“Of course, it is still early in flu season,” he said, adding that the hospital has also received the vaccine earlier this year than a few years ago.

Mercer said TRICARE typically covers flu shots for dependents and retirees so they can receive the shot from their primary care provider.

“We just ask they bring us documentation to include in their record,” he said.

Marines in active flying status exposed to altitude changes will be grounded for 72 hours following receiving the shot. Personnel not in active flying status, air traffic controllers for example, will be grounded for 12 hours. Flight surgeons may recommend return of those personnel to duty within the grounded period when necessary to meet operational commitments.

“Delinquent active and reserve personnel shall be identified and promptly immunized at earliest opportunity,” the order states. “Vaccination of unimmunized personnel will continue until vaccine supply is exhausted or the vaccine expiration date is reached.”
