Coming Soon – Drive-Up Pharmacy Window at Guthrie Clinic

Construction has begun on a drive-up window at the Guthrie Pharmacy. The pharmacy window will increase the ease of prescription pick up, providing convenient access from the comfort of your own vehicle.

“Similar to other retail pharmacies, we’re developing and designing a retail pick-up window that will allow beneficiaries to access their prescriptions without actually having to leave their car,” said Christopher Jones, Fort Drum MEDDAC Deputy Chief of Pharmacy. “We plan to use the window to expand upon our current drive-up program and ensure it’s sustainable for the long term.”

Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to the grand opening of the drive-up window. #ArmyMedicine is #ArmyStrong!

COVID-19 and Your Health

As we continue to move through the DOD phased population tiers for COVID-19 vaccination, we will soon begin offering the vaccine to authorized beneficiaries ages 16 and over with increased risk for severe illness as defined by the CDC. The CDC’s list of medical conditions is subject to change as the science evolves and we learn more about COVID-19. For a complete list of conditions, head over to the CDC website below.

An error was discovered in our recent automated data collection calls asking for beneficiary interest in COVID vaccination. Incorrect age groups (under 16 years) were inadvertently included in the population called. The error has been identified and the calls have stopped.

We continue to administer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine according to the Emergency Use Authorization, which does not include children under 16 years of age.

We apologize for the misunderstanding and appreciate your patience as we work through identifying high-risk populations for future COVID vaccinations.

Col. Rob Heath and Command Sgt. Maj. Wendy Menendez, the Fort Drum Medical Activity commander and senior enlisted leader respectively, received their COVID-19 vaccination this morning at the Guthrie Army Medical Home.

“COVID-19 has been tough on all of us," Heath said. "And, while catching COVID-19 might not be catastrophic for me, it could be for those I love and care for. Getting this vaccine will help protect me, my Squad and healthcare teammates, my family, and our Fort Drum community. That’s my number one priority."

Healthcare professionals from the Fort Drum Medical Activity and the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division were the first to receive the #COVID19Vaccine on Fort Drum today. Throughout the rest of the week, we will continue providing the vaccine to our frontline healthcare workers and first responders.

Given the limited manufacturer supply, the COVID-19 vaccine is currently not available to Fort Drum’s general patient population at this time. As we receive more doses of the vaccine and progress through the phased prioritized groups outlined by the DoD, vaccination will ultimately be available to all Fort Drum beneficiaries, including military family members and retirees.

COVID-19 Vaccination Begins

The Fort Drum Medical Activity administered the first COVID-19 vaccines today. Mary Paul, a nurse with the Bowe COVID-19 treatment clinic and Chicago native, was the very first person to receive the vaccine on Fort Drum.

“Working with the COVID team since the beginning, it only makes sense,” she said. “If the vaccine is offered, we might as well do our part and start getting the community vaccinated so we can all get back to normal and carry on.”

We will continue providing vaccinations to Fort Drum frontline healthcare workers, first responders, and other healthcare workers throughout the week. In the coming weeks, more of the Fort Drum population will have the opportunity to receive the vaccine, including deploying Soldiers, high-risk individuals, and the healthy population. We will release more information as it becomes available.

Yesterday, the Fort Drum Medical Activity received the first shipment of the Pfizer ultra-cold COVID-19 vaccine. Starting next week, COVID-19 frontline healthcare workers, first responders, and medical personnel will begin receiving the vaccine.

Because of the limited supply of the vaccine, inoculation will be conducted in phases. Check out the link below to learn more about the phases and where you might fall. #ArmyMedicine is #ArmyStrong!

COVID-19 vaccine: How was it developed so fast?

The COVID-19 vaccine is already here, and many might be wondering how a vaccine was safely developed so quickly for a virus we’ve only known about for the last year. However, research and development of a vaccine to combat viruses in the coronavirus family has been going on for decades.

Researchers have been able to use what they’ve learned to successfully develop vaccines that are more than 90% effective against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Read more about the vaccine's development below, and stay tuned as we will provide more information on when and how to receive your vaccine. #ArmyMedicine is #ArmyStrong!

Is there a problem with the phone lines, trying to make an appointment since 7 am and it keeps giving me the after hours options
Left in the lab at Guthrie
so proud of you!
How are families supposed to schedule EFMP meetings when there is no answer at all three number, only 1 who has a voicemail setup, and the appointment line is dropping so you can't reach a person?
Are the hours for the pharmacy normal hours?
Called at 0701 and requested a same day appointment and after I explained what I needed help with.......I was told there are no appointments for today???? So why did you make me explain what I needed help for? Or are you picking who you will help today? This has never happened to me before EVER. I was always successful with same day appointments for over 11 years. I can’t understand that 1 minute after the lines are opened there are no slots for same day appointments.
Is there something wrong with the phone lines? Pharmacy line says disconnected and regular appointment line goes to a general army medaac line
Kinda ridiculous having to wait an hour for just getting my blood pressure checked
Will you'll please fix your broke assed phone system, you call us w/ important information and/or referrals & by the time one gets through playing pick the number; the system cuts you off. It does NO good to tell people about this, one is informed that they are aware of the problem, yet year after year nothing changes. Put someone in charge of fixing the problem = a NCO.
If you love your country Vote Sept 13th, primaries are very important
How is Fort Drum?
