Blanchfield Army Community Hospital Public

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – Decrease in demand recently for COVID-19 and Flu vaccines at Fort Campbell allows the service to move from the Passenger Processing Center to primary care clinics, February 23rd, 2022. The last day for COVID-19 and Flu vaccines at the current site, the Fort Campbell Passenger Processing Center, is February 17th.

“The Passenger Processing Site has been an ideal location for BACH personnel to support the COVID-19 and Flu vaccine mission, but now that the majority of the population is vaccinated, this service can easily be handled in the clinical setting for family members, retirees, and TRICARE eligible beneficiaries,” said Blanchfield Army Community Hospital commander Col. Vincent B. Myers.

“This allows us to return borrowed Soldier support back to their unit and our clinical personnel to return back to the primary care setting to support the overall health of our population.”
