All Marines, active and reserve, are due for a flu shot unless they are medically exempt, according to new Defense Department guidelines.

“Comprehensive prevention measures must be enforced by Marine Corps leaders to prevent potential adverse operational consequences of influenza,” according to the guidelines authorized   for public release by Lt. Gen. R.T. Tryon, deputy commandant for plans, policies and operations.

The shot includes a vaccine for the 2009 h1n1 pandemic strain as one of three seasonal influenza components. Marines with a known allergic reaction and certain clinical conditions will be exempt.

DOD civilian employees, military retirees and family members are encouraged   to receive the flu shot, based on available supply, age and those with higher risk of health complications arising from influenza.
