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.

“Previously the only option for beneficiaries not enrolled [with a primary care manager] at the hospital was to use off-post immunization services, like a retail pharmacy, so, we’re excited to make these vaccinations readily available on the installation for our adult beneficiaries seen off post and at BACH,” said Lt. Col. Ronald Foley, chief of pharmacy at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital.
