Seventy one years ago today, the U.S. Air Force became an independent service, creating a new breed of warriors to own and protect the skies. Ever since, Airmen have protected America from air, space and cyberspace aggression.
Each squadron in the Air Force faces different stressors and health challenges that require unique solutions. General David Goldfein, Chief of Staff of the Air Force, is leading an effort to revitalize Air Force squadrons.
Air National Guard Airmen are key to supporting Total Force readiness. Training agreements with civilian hospitals are vital to helping them achieve this support.
Sexual assault can be a deeply traumatizing event in anyone’s life. Across the Air Force, Airmen and their families have access to Sexual Assault Prevention and Response or Family Advocacy Program resources to get support and guidance on how to move forward.
One thing Airmen worry about when they deploy is the well-being of their family, especially children who may have a hard time coping with the challenges that come with a parent’s deployment. The impact of deployment on children is a key component of Airmen readiness. Knowing their family is well helps Airmen focus on the mission.

The NAL will provide instructions or may authorize use of an Urgent Care Center if medically necessary.

The call center and all other clinical areas, to include Pharmacy, will remain open for patients.

School and Camp Physicals In Massachusetts, children ages 4 to 17 are required to have physicals for initial enrollment in school and in most summer camps. They are also necessary for participation in sports programs, which require updated physicals every 13 months. The 66th Medical Squadron will host two physical days this summer for initial enrollment in school, sports and in most summer camps. The dates are July 12 from 1:00 to 4 p.m. and Aug. 9 from 7:30 to 11 a.m. Appointments should be scheduled with the child's primary care manager; however, a child may be seen by a different provider depending on availability. If any medical issues beyond the scope of the physical are identified during the appointment, an additional appointment will be scheduled to address those issues. The focus of these appointments is to complete the requirements for the physical and to review the child's immunization record. The patient will also receive any required immunizations during the visit. Upon the completion of the appointment, parents will receive a copy of the Massachusetts School Health form which is valid for enrollment in school, summer camps and sports programs in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Individuals relocating to another state should contact that local school system and request copies of the required forms to take to the child's appointment to ensure the physical will be valid at the new school. School and sports physical appointments will be available on a limited basis throughout the summer, so parents are encouraged to make appointments as early as possible. To request an appointment or for more information, call the 66 MDS appointment line at 781-225-6789.
Systems have been restored and all services are now available. Thank you for your patience during the systems outage. The clinic is currently experiencing technical difficulties with all medical systems. The clinic is still open and scheduled appointments will be seen, but there may be a delay and services will be limited. The clinic is not able to provide Radiology, Immunizations, or fill new prescriptions. If you have an appointment scheduled today, you have the option to reschedule by calling 781-225-6789. This post will be updated once all systems have been restored. We appreciate your patience as we work diligently to resolve these issues.
Even though we are an Air Force Military Treatment Facility, we have more sister service active duty members enrolled than AF!#NationalBestFriendsDay
From June 4-14 2018, there will be a base-wide exercise. Please plan accordingly during this time when visiting the clinic. The base will be evaluating readiness and emergency response Some of these scenarios may result in traffic delays both entering and exiting the base, or restrictions in movement around the installation. Delays and disruptions in normal operations should be expected both during and after normal duty hours.
