FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. — The General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital Immunization Clinic is now offering vaccines — by limited appointment only — to 12- to 18-year-old Tricare-enrolled beneficiaries.

Appointments are available at 3:30 p.m. now through Friday and Monday through May 27 at the Immunizations Clinic.

To qualify, no other immunizations can be given 14 days prior to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

To make an appointment, call the appointment line at 866.299.4234.

Additionally, there will be a by-appointment mass-vaccination event 8 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Saturday at Nutter Field House, held only for 12- to 18-year-old Tricare-enrolled beneficiaries. This will be for the initial dose vaccination only and includes the previously eligible 16- to 18-year-old patients to accommodate all eligible school-aged beneficiaries.

Follow-up appointments will be held at another mass-vaccination event June 12 at Nutter Field House. Appointments can be made here.

A parent or guardian must accompany any 12 to 17 year old who wants to be vaccinated.
