No-cost flu shot options for Veterans



Flu season is here, and getting your flu shot has never been easier. Remember that getting vaccinated is the single best way to protect yourself, as well as your loved ones , against the flu virus.

This year, enrolled Veterans of the VA health care system have several options to get a seasonal flu shot. VA offers more options, easy access, and seamless records – the choice is yours.

So what are your options?

You may opt to get a free flu shot at your local VA health care facility.

Or you may choose to go to your neighborhood Walgreens.

As an enrolled VA patient, you can get a no-cost flu shot at Walgreens from August 1, 2015 – March 31, 2016.

VA health care facilities

You may receive a no-cost flu shot during any scheduled appointment, if you are admitted to one of our VA health care facilities, or at one of the convenient walk-in flu stations.

Walgreens nationwide

If you are a Veteran patient in the VA system, you may choose to get a no-cost flu shot at a local Walgreens between now and March 31, 2016.

No appointment is required; simply go to any Walgreens, tell the pharmacist you receive care at a VA facility and show your Veterans Identification Card and another form of photo ID. Use Group Code # 5933XBAYV.

Your immunization record will be updated electronically in your local VA electronic health record.

Non-VA Providers and Pharmacies

Many local retail pharmacies offer flu shots that may be covered by private insurance or programs such as Medicare. If you do not have insurance, there will usually be a charge.

Reference to non-VA pharmacies, including Walgreens, does not constitute or imply endorsement of these organizations, their services or products. If your local pharmacy is currently not participating in the VA Retail Immunization Program, it may participate in the future as the program expands. Vaccine is subject to availability. State and health-related restrictions may apply. If you do not have insurance coverage, there may be a charge for a flu shot after March 31, 2016.

  1. Get full body sun year round and you’ll never get the flu – use sun spectrum lamps in winter if needed – been doing this for over 10 years and haven’t even had a minor case of sniffles. Sunlight keeps up your vitamin D levels which are the foundation of a strong immune system.

  2. The accumulation of animal pus and poisons that we vets have had continuously injected in us can be essentially removed via EDTA chelation. Anal suppositories are most effective with the least unfavorable side effects.

  3. All vets wishing to infect ones body with the mumbo-jumbo, pharmaceutical concoction of infectious animal tissue plus know poisons, should get one. Vets can get one free this year – as in all past years since the “flu shot” was invented. I stopped in 1988, havent had “flu” since then.
    “Vaccination” was proved to be a fraud by the college of surgeons in England, one physician of whom wrote a lengthy rebuttal, an except of which follows,” – -I fear the experiment of vaccination will be found injurious to the peace, the health, and the welfare of society.” “History and Pathology of Vaccination,” Crookshank, p. 203(1889 publication)

  4. Like the previous two guys, just what is VT doing instead of pointing these Vets that have lasted this long in harms way, YOU SINGLE handled are pointing them into the bullets from which they survived, shame on you especially when you understand the adjuvants etc they put into each shots, not forgetting MERCURY!!
    If anyone knows a Vet in the U.S. then get out there and tell them, the blasted notices are all over the place here in the UK, surgeries and supermarkets alike !
    Home made VIT C as found on You Tube with the Internet chef
    Bridget Davis, so easy and stateside SO cheap, its called Liposomal Encapsulated Vit C, check out the benefits including cancer!!!
    Having visited Normandy France and ‘the Beaches’ as in “Saving Private Ryan”, having as a boy of 10 whilst in Africa with my army father, had the experience of shooting the ‘Spandau’ machine gun at a rate of 1500 rounds PER MINUTE!!!! and then see where these brave young lads landed and died, it makes me cry every time I think of the carnage on behalf of the Rothschild’s, Vatican and the rest, I also think of the waste of 7,000,000 Germans who perished having surrendered to the allies post war! including civilians!
    So VT, you HAVE A DUTY to steer these survivors well away from harms way and into the arms of those that will continue to care for them in LOVE, so that one day, they might just hang up their gun for good! and go home to Father intact!!

    • Exactly. Vaccines, really?????

      1st chemo, now vaccines. I really thought VT guys were well informed but this is another no no!

    • There is nothing wrong with serving your own interests, but when this involves harming others, you will be taught why you should not do so. No-one is above universal law and you will reap what you sow. Maybe not today and not tomorrow but you will reap your bitter harvest. This is a very important juncture in the history of this planet. You will understand why it is not good for your soul to serve an evil agenda. Control over humanity will slip from your grasping hands – that is my understanding of Prime Creator’s wish for Earth. So who is it that you serve?
