Flu Vaccine Information

The 2018-2019 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.

Four 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 October 15-November 2, 2018 (Monday-Friday) from 9am-2pm on the Ground Floor of the main facility near the SouthEast Information Booth.

  3. Attend our Drive-Thru Flu Clinic - On Saturday, November 3, 2018 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. This event will be held rain or shine.

  4. Visit your local Walgreens - No-cost flu shots available for VA enrolled Veterans at your local Walgreens. This option is available through March 31, 2019. Learn more about VA's partnership with Walgreens in this Fact Sheet.
