Free Vaccinations at Walgreens

VHA has again teamed up with national retail pharmacy Walgreens to provide no-cost quadrivalent flu vaccinations for enrolled veterans. All veterans who are currently enrolled in VA care may walk into any of the over 8,000 Walgreens nationally and the Duane Reade pharmacies in the New York metropolitan area to receive a vaccination at no cost. After presenting a Veterans identification card and a photo ID, a Walgreens pharmacist administers the vaccine and transmits that information securely to VA where it becomes part of the patient's electronic medical record. To locate a Walgreens store near you, call 800-WALGREENs (800-925-4733) or visit the Walgreens website. To learn more about the flu and flu vaccine, visit the VA Influenza webpage or the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website.
