Eligible veterans will be able to get their flu shots at the Alexandria VFW Post 936 on Friday, Oct. 25, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. The VFW is at 1102 3rd Ave. E.
Flu clinics are for enrolled veterans only. No appointment is necessary to get vaccinated at a walk-in clinic.
This year, the Veterans Administration is again offering the standard-dose vaccine which protects against four strains of influenza virus. The Center for Disease Control does not recommend any influenza vaccine over another, the VA said.
Again this year, veterans enrolled in the VA health care system will be able to walk into any Walgreens to receive a the four-strain vaccination at no cost with a Veterans Health Identification Card and a photo ID.
