Do I need an appointment?
No. All hours are on a walk in basis. No appointment is necessary.

What do I do if I think I need allergy testing?
Any testing and care for allergies must be first coordinated through your Primary Care Manager. Your Primary Care Manager will take care of all necessary evaluations and referrals.

What days do you do Tuberculosis (TB) tests?
In order for Tuberculosis tests to be read within the proper time frame, these tests are NOT performed on Thursdays.

Do I need to bring a copy of my immunizations when I arrive on base?

The Air Force utilizes a central application to track immunizations, but sometimes the data does not transfer between bases. To ensure your records are up to date, we recommend that you bring a copy of your shot records to the immunization clinic within 30 days of arrival to Edwards for review.
