Flu Vaccine Information

The 2019-2020 Flu season is here and we want you to be prepared. 

Flu, short for influenza, is a respiratory illness that spreads easily from person to person. Flu vaccination is your best protection against the flu, which usually begins in the fall and can continue through late spring.
Everyone age 6 months and older should get the vaccine. The best defense is a good offense. Get your flu shot. As a Veteran, there are many opportunities available to you.

Three Simple Ways to Get Your Flu Shot:

  1. Ask for a flu shot during any scheduled appointment.

  2. Visit our Walk-In Flu Clinic - Don't have an appointment? Visit our Walk-In Flu Clinic at the main hospital.  The walk-in flu clinic will be open November 4th - November 15th (with the clinic closed on November 11th in observance of the Veterans Day Holiday) Monday-Friday from 8:30am - 1:30pm on the Ground Floor of the main facility near the SouthEast Information Booth.

  3. Visit your local Walgreens - No-cost flu shots available for VA enrolled Veterans at your local Walgreens. This option is available through March 31, 2020. (***There is no cost to Veterans enrolled in VA health care for quadrivalent vaccine at Walgreens. High dosage (HD) flu vaccines will not be offered this year by Walgreens. However, if you decide to get another vaccine or different type of flu vaccine, Walgreens may charge you, your private insurance, or Medicare.***).
