VA MEDICAL CENTER TO OFFER FLU SHOTS TO VETERANS
The staff at the James E. Van Zandt VA Medical Center wants to make sure that every Veteran in its fourteen county coverage area gets a flu shot this year. The medical center and its community based outpatient clinics (CBOCs) have a schedule of flu shot clinics that will make it easy to get the vaccine. This schedule includes “drive-through” flu shot clinics at all locations. Veteran patients can also receive the vaccination at their primary care clinics at a regularly scheduled appointment or by walk-in (may be a wait for walk-ins).
The schedule of flu shot clinics includes:
Drive through flu clinic October 12 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Drive through flu clinic October 5: 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Drive through flu clinic September 28: 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Drive through flu clinic October 19 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Veterans who are not enrolled for VA health care should bring proof of Veteran status such as a DD214.
The James E. Van Zandt VA Medical Center has four locations and offers services to the more than 87,000 Veterans living in a 14 county area of Pennsylvania including Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Huntingdon, Indiana, Jefferson, Juniata, Mifflin, and Somerset. The medical center is a member of VA Healthcare – VISN 4.
