Fighting Flu Together: Get Immunized

As we move forward together through the COVID-19 pandemic, wellness and safety are our top priorities. With flu season upon us, vaccination is the best protection we have in fighting and controlling influenza. This year, the Department of Veterans Affairs is offering more ways than ever to protect you and those around you from the flu.

VA is participating in a robust Community Care Network to offer Veterans free flu shots at 60,000 locations nationwide including CVS, Costco, Kroger’s, Safeway, Wegmans, Walmart and other Community Care Network locations.

Visit to find a current in-network location near you. No appointment or VA referral is required. Just present your valid VA identification card or a valid government-issued identification to receive your no-cost flu shot.
The Free Flu Shot Clinic at the Washington DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center begins on October 5, 2020. Visit the DC VAMC’s Research Building between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. for your no-cost immunization. No appointment is necessary.
