Free flu shot clinic for veterans begins next week

IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (WLUC) Flu vaccinations are now available for Veterans enrolled in VA health care. Veterans may request the flu shot at their regularly scheduled VA appointments.

Veterans may also get vaccinated during free walk-in flu shot clinics at Marquette VA Clinic Thursday and Friday, October 19 and 20, from 9 to 11 a.m. (ET) and 1 to 3 p.m. (ET) each day.

No appointment is necessary. The clinic is located at 1414 West Fair Avenue, Suite 285.

Veterans may call (800) 215-8262, extension 34758, for updated VA Flu Shot Clinics throughout the Upper Peninsula.

In addition, the VA has partnered with Walgreens to provide no-cost flu shots to enrolled Veterans without filling out VA forms or carrying paper records.

Veterans can simply go to their local Walgreens, tell the pharmacist they receive care at a VA facility, and show their Veterans Identification Card or other proof they are enrolled in the VA health care system.

The immunization record will be updated electronically in the Veteran’s VA medical record.
