Veterans Health Release: Flu Vaccines Still Available to Eligible Veterans

In an effort to reduce the impact of the seasonal flu and connected illness, enrolled/eligible Veterans may still obtain a seasonal flu vaccination at any of the thirteen (13) North Florida/South Georgia Veteran Health System facilities through January 25, 2013. The locations, days, and times can be found below.

Many people suffer severe consequences from the flu. It is very important for every Veteran to get his or her flu shot. The flu shot is the only measure of protection from the influenza virus.

Friendly Reminders:

Please bring your VA ID card.

Flu Shots are available for Veterans presently enrolled within North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System.

If you have a scheduled appointment at the Gainesville or Lake City Medical Center during flu shot season, you can get your flu shot that day.
