Free flu shots for VA enrolled Veterans
VA 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 nationwide can receive their flu shot at any of chain’s 9,600 locations. Veterans can also visit their local VA health care facilities.
Veterans who want a different flu shot such as the high dose can visit a VA health care facility. Walgreens contracts with the VA to provide the quadrivalent flu vaccine only.
How do I get my flu shot for free at Walgreens?
Veterans do not need an appointment. Simply go to any store, 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 complete a vaccine consent form at the time of service.) Learn more about Flu shots for Veterans at Walgreens.
