Veterans can get free flu shots at Walgreens if you're enrolled in VA healthcare...

No appointment is required. Simply go to any Walgreens, 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.

The VA-Walgreens national partnership is part of VAs eHealth Exchange project. This national program ensures that many Veterans get their no-cost flu shot at their local Walgreens, satisfying their wellness reminder because they either found it more convenient or did not have a scheduled appointment at a local VA health care facility.

1. Nah. I get mine at the V A Medical center free every year.

Look forward to being around veterans. Walgreens doesn't have that.

2. Me too, but if you're not near a VA center, this could help.

3. Lots of V A clinics around too.

I won't be tempted to any form of privatization attempts.
