It's not too late to vaccinate!
If you haven't gotten vaccinated yet, it's not too late to protect yourself against flu. Flu activity usually peaks between December and February, but viruses can continue to cause illness as late as May. Veterans should continue to get vaccinated for as long as flu viruses are still circulating in the community. Don't delay! Get your flu shot today!
VA partners with Walgreens
Veterans enrolled in the VA Health Care System can also get a no-cost flu shot at participating Walgreens through the VA Retail Immunization Care Coordination Program.
