Free Flu Shots at VA Clinics and Walgreens for Veterans Enrolled in VA Healthcare

Posted on October 9, 2015 by Disability Help Group

Prevention of the influenza (flu) virus is important for everyone’s health, and especially for anyone with a disabling condition. If you are a U.S. veteran currently enrolled in the VA Health Care system, you are eligible for a free flu shot at your local VA clinic or participating Walgreens locations across the nation.

If you live near a VA health care facility, you can obtain your free seasonal flu vaccine at your local clinic. Flu shots are given upon request during any regular scheduled appointment, while you are admitted to a VA hospital, or at the walk-in flu stations established in many of the larger VA clinics and hospitals.

Walgreens locations nationwide will be offering the free seasonal flu vaccine to veterans at no cost through March 31, 2016. When you go in for your flu shot, inform the pharmacist you are enrolled in VA health care and show your Veterans Identification Card. You will also need to show another form of photo ID such as a driver’s license or passport. You will need to reference Group Code #5933XBAYV.

Keeping up to date with the latest seasonal flu vaccine is a step towards protecting yourself and those you love. If you have a chronic health condition such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, or any type of auto-immune disease, a flu shot is highly recommended to reduce your risk of further complications.
