Aleda E. Lutz VAMC Hosts Drive-thru Flu Shot Clinics
The Aleda E. Lutz VAMC is hosting drive-thru influenza vaccine clinics on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., starting September 15, 2020 and ending in October. Drive-thru clinics will be cancelled on days in which there is inclement weather. If presenting for a drive-thru clinic, please wear a short-sleeve shirt for ease of vaccination and a mask. Call your local community-based outpatient clinic to find out their flu shot clinic schedule. For the directory, go to https://www.saginaw.va.gov/locations/index.asp. Veterans can now receive the influenza vaccines during face-to-face appointments as well.
Eligible Veterans can now receive their seasonal flu shots at more than 60,000 Community Care Network (CCN) retail pharmacies and urgent care locations. This replaces the Walgreens Retail Immunization Care Coordination Program, which ended in March 2020.
