Flu information for Veterans
Updated September 7, 2017
Once the VAMC has received the 2017-2018 shipment of the vaccine, Veteran patients can get their flu shot from their primary care manager or you can simply ask for your flu shot at your next VA health care appointment. Pneumonia shots are also available if you and your provider feel you need one.
Veterans - you can get your vaccine at any of our locations (once the new vaccine shipments are received).
Veterans enrolled in the VA health care system can now choose to get a no-cost flu shot at a local Walgreens. No appointment is required. Veteran patients may go to any Walgreens, tell the pharmacist they receive care at a VA facility and show their Veterans Identification Card and another form of photo ID to receive a flu shot. The Veteran’s medical insurance will be billed, and if the Veteran does not have insurance, VA will be billed - there will be no out of pocket cost.
