Subject: Michigan Army National Guard Statewide Vaccination Initiative for Personnel
Be advised that the Michigan Army National Guard has initiated a statewide smallpox and anthrax vaccination initiative for approximately 1,000 National Guard personnel who are part of a civil support CBRN/all-hazards response force. These personnel are assigned and live throughout Michigan.
The majority of the smallpox vaccinations are being administered during the summer months while the personnel are engaged in annual training. Anthrax is being administered on a more frequent basis according to its dosing schedule. The program is now underway and will continue through the summer of 2016.
National Guard personnel, family and medical provider inquiries regarding any vaccine related issues are directed to call the Department of Defense Vaccine Clinical Call Center 24/7 at 866-210-6469. Further information is also available at http://www.vaccines.mil/ . Please direct non-urgent administrative comments and questions to: MAJ (Dr) R. Dale Jackson, DO, MPH, FS at firstname.lastname@example.org
