The VA also has other options for eligible veterans to receive their flu shots. Veterans may request one at their regularly scheduled VA appointments or, new this year, get their flu shots at a community based urgent care clinic or retail pharmacy that is in the VA Community Care Network (CCN).

No appointment or referral is needed for in-network community care options. Veterans can go to an in-network urgent care or retail pharmacy location, present valid government-issued identification (e.g. Veteran Health ID card, Department of Defense ID card, or state-issued driver’s license), and receive their flu shot. In-network urgent care or retail pharmacy locations may be found at www.va.gov and clicking the Find a VA Location link at the top.

Veterans enrolled in VA health care who received their flu shot elsewhere outside of these options are requested to contact their VA primary care clinic and provide that information.
