You can also receive a flu vaccine during a regularily scheduled appointment or call 877-339-6837 to make an appointment.  Because of COVID-19 precautions, we can not accept walk-ins. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone six months or older should get a yearly flu shot. Flu can be serious among young children, older adults and those with chronic health conditions, such as asthma, heart disease or diabetes.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of Americans are hospitalized with the flu. Keep yourself safe and get the flu vaccine!

Other Options for Immunizations 

Another option to receive your flu vaccine is through an in-network retail pharmacy or urgent care location.

Present a valid, government-issued identification (e.g. Veterans Health ID Card, Department of Defense ID card, state-issued driver's license or ID card, etc.) to receive your flu shot.

Eligible Veterans can receive a no-cost, standard-dose (quadrivalent) or high-dose flu shot.
