VA offering free flu shots for veterans

VA Pittsburgh will offer free flu shots to eligible Veterans from September 1 through March 30.

VA Pittsburgh has several easy ways for Veterans to get vaccinated:

  • Drop by a walk-in flu shot clinic at H.J. Heinz or University Drive from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. any weekday beginning September 16, except federal holidays. Check in at registration, and they will point you in the right direction.
    • At University Drive: Go to the main lobby on the first floor.
    • At H.J. Heinz: Go to the Ambulatory Care Center (Building 71).
  • Visit your localĀ community-based outpatient clinic.
  • Visit University Drive’s emergency department during evenings, weekends or federal holidays.
  • Ask for a free flu shot at any scheduled VAPHS appointment or from your visiting VA nurse.

Be sure to bring along a photo ID, such as a driver’s license or your Veterans Identification Card.
