Shingrix vaccine

The Shingrix vaccine for shingles is currently unavailable at the clinic due to high demand nationwide. The vaccine is a two-shot series, with an additional dose due within 2-6 months. The vaccine is covered by TRICARE, however availability in the network is also limited. The vaccine’s manufacturer is increasing production and we will notify patients once our supply levels have improved.

Do you have OHI?

All non-active duty beneficiaries are required to provide information regarding other health insurance (OHI) coverage annually, or whenever health information changes. This information is provided to the clinic using DD Form 2569, Third Party Collection Form. Providing information about third party insurance helps satisfy annual deductibles with no out-of-pocket costs to the beneficiary. Funds collected by Ehrling Bergquist Clinic are used to enhance health care delivery within our clinic.
