Blanchfield Army Hospital - BACH - Fort Campbell KYFort Campbell, KY – Fort Campbell’s Town Center Pharmacy has added an adult immunization service where TRICARE beneficiaries may receive vaccinations free, saving the government money officials announced April 9th, 2018.

Col. Ronald Foley, chief of pharmacy at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital.
