Quick Access

Other flu shot options available

The flu season is beginning, and the Sault Ste. Marie VA Clinic has scheduled a drive-up flu shot clinic on Tuesday, Oct. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for Veterans enrolled in VA health care. The VA clinic is located at 509 Osborn Blvd, Suite 306. No appointment is needed.

The VA also has other options for eligible veterans to receive their flu shots. Veterans may request one at their regularly scheduled VA appointments, or, new this year, get their flu shots at a community-based urgent care clinic or retail pharmacy that is in the VA Community Care Network (CCN).

No appointment or referral is needed for in-network community care options. Veterans can go to an in-network urgent care or retail pharmacy location, present valid government-issued identification (e.g. Veteran Health ID card, Department of Defense ID card, or state-issued driver's license), and receive their flu shot. In-network urgent care or retail pharmacy locations may be found at www.va.gov and clicking the “Find a VA Location” link at the top, and choosing “Community pharmacies in VA’s network.”
