Flu

Flu season is here and we want you to be prepared. 
Veterans enrolled in VA health care can get a free flu shot at a VA health care facility.

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.

There are several options available to receive your flu vaccine through the Oklahoma City VA Health Care System. 

How to get your flu shot:

  1. Primary Care Scheduled Appointment - If you already have an appointment with your PACT, you can receive your flu shot at that appointment
  2. 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 October 10-27, 2017 (Monday-Friday) from 9am-2pm on the Ground Floor of the main facility near the SouthEast Information booth.
  3. Drive-Thru Flu Clinic - On Saturday, October 27 from 9am-12pm you can get your flu shot and not even get out of your vehicle!  The Drive Thru Flu Clinic is back by popular demand and will be held in the North Parking Lot at the main hospital. 
  4. Walgreens - More convenient to go to a local Walgreens? Veterans enrolled in VA health care can get a flu shot at Walgreens, and the information will be automatically added to their VA health record. Learn more about VA's partnership with Walgreens.
