Tuberculosis, or TB, tests are not done on Thursdays, nor Fridays proceeding a 3-day weekend because they require a follow-up visit within 48 to 72 hours. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends that persons be observed for 15-20 minutes after being immunized for possible adverse reactions. Patients must bring in any shot records from non-Air Force medical facilities.
COVID-19 Vaccine Update
The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine has recently arrived at Misawa Air Base. It is currently only available to certain populations at this time. The 35th Medical Group is taking a tiered approach to maximize protection based off our current supply. Once the initial phases of vaccine distribution is complete, the vaccine will be more broadly available and you will be notified.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
