Free flu shots for veterans at Walgreens

Oct 03, 2019

Belfast — The Veterans Administration and Walgreens are national partners, providing no-cost quadrivalent flu shots to enrolled veterans of the VA health care system. Now through March 31, 2020, enrolled veteran patients can get a free flu shot at any of Walgreens’ 9,600 locations, including Walgreens in Belfast, in addition to their local VA health care facilities.

No appointment is required. Simply tell the pharmacist you receive care at a VA facility, and show your Veterans Health Identification Card and another form of photo ID. (Patients will also be asked to complete a vaccine consent form at the time of service.)

Walgreens has the capability to electronically send vaccination information to the VA and your immunization record will be updated in your VA electronic health record.

Veterans enrolled with VA also may receive a no-cost flu shot during any scheduled VA appointment or at one of the convenient walk-in flu stations. For more information on locations and hours, contact your local VA health care facility.
