                          Veterans may receive their flu vaccines beginning the week of September 23, 2019:

                    Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

Also, all Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) will offer flu vaccines during the Veterans’ scheduled appointments.  If you would like to schedule an appointment for a flu vaccine, please contact your CBOC.  For fastest service, it is highly recommended to schedule an appointment.  Appointments will be scheduled from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.   Veterans may also go to a local Walgreens now through March31, 2020 and tell them they are enrolled in VA health care, provide their VA Identification Card, and a second form of photo ID.  VA will receive information from Walgreens to include in the Veterans electronic Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS).  Also, if Veterans have received their flu vaccine somewhere other than the VA, they need to let their health care team know for documentation in CPRS.
