Vaccine Resources

Getting vaccinated is one of the best things you can do to protect your health and your community. We’re here to help you find the resources and information you need to make a vaccination plan.


How to get vaccinated

Your TRICARE benefit offers multiple options for you and your family to get vaccinated. Review TRICARE's list of covered vaccines to see which vaccines may apply for you or your family.


Retail pharmacies
You can get covered vaccines for free at participating retail network pharmacies when administered by a pharmacist. Before you arrive, contact your pharmacy to confirm the vaccine is available and can be aministerd by a pharmacist. To get started, find a pharmacy near you.

  • Flu Vaccines: Your yearly flu vaccine is free if you get it at a retail network pharmacy. Be sure to present your military ID at the time of service.

  • COVID-19 Vaccines: At this time, TRICARE beneficiaries can get the COVID-19 vaccine for free at any retail pharmacy that is offering the vaccine, even if the pharmacy is not a part of the TRICARE pharmacy network. This only applies to the COVID-19 vaccine. Other vaccines are not covered at out-of-network pharmacies.



Civilian and TRICARE authorized providers
Contact your doctor or see a TRICARE authorized provider at a participating network clinic. If you choose one of these options, you may have a copayment for the office visit.


COVID-19 News

On August 13th, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended that people who are moderately to severely immunocompromised receive an additional dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The CDC continues to recommends everyone ages 12 and older to get a COVID-19 vaccination.


SMART Health Card

Take your COVID-19 vaccine record with you wherever you go.

If we have your COVID-19 vaccine claim information*, you’ll find a record in your Express Scripts® mobile app. You’ll also find your SMART Health Card, a QR code that contains your name, birthdate, and verified vaccine information. Use it to share your vaccine status whenever you need it.**

*We’re working to get more sources of vaccine data so we can show more records.
**SMART Health Card readers may be used when proof of vaccination is needed.
