Vaccination is becoming common - but don't let your guard down.
There is a huge network of organisations supporting the Armed Forces community, so finding the right one for your needs can be tricky.
Veterans' Gateway, by being your first point of contact for whatever support you need, and whether you are at home or abroad, can make it quick and easy to find the right service.
Veterans' Gateway is made up of a consortium of organisations of Armed Forces charities, including the Royal British Legion, SSAFA - the Armed Forces charity, Poppyscotland, Combat Stress and Connect Assist.
Their connection with additional key referral partners and information organisations - both within and outside the Armed Forces sector - means they can get you to the right organisation who can help.
Funded by the Armed Forces Covenant, this is the first time a group of this kind has come together formally to deliver a service to help the Armed Forces community.
You can speak to one of their team by phone or by email. Their number is Freephone in the UK. From overseas it is suggested you select the Live Chat option on their web page.
You can use their Self Help Service, clickable on their web page, to find information yourself.
This includes advice from a range of organisations covering issues from employment, finances and housing to independent living, mental wellbeing, physical health, and families and communities.
Follow the latest developments in support for the Armed Forces community by connecting to Veterans' Gateway on Facebook and Twitter and visiting their News Section.

Rewards for Forces (www.rewardsforforces.co.uk) offers free membership and discounts to all visiting US Veterans and their families. This will save them money and is a way for the UK to show its appreciation for their service.
