WALLA WALLA, Wash. — The  Walla Walla VA Medical Center and Clinics are offering free drive-thru flu shot clinics to veterans. Eligible veterans will be able to get their flu shots without leaving their vehicle.

Shot clinics are available on Oct. 7 and Oct. 14, from 8-10 a.m., at the La Grande VA Clinic parking lot, 202 12th St., and on Oct. 9 and Oct. 23, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Richland VA Clinic parking lot, 825 Jadwin Ave., Richland, Washington.

Veterans unable to attend the clinics can get a free flu shot from a VA in-network pharmacy or urgent care facility by visiting www.va.gov/find-locations (enter your ZIP code and select “community pharmacies” or “urgent care” under “Facility Type”). Veterans can also call or message their primary care team to schedule an appointment for a flu shot.

Additional information on all of Walla Walla VA’s scheduled drive-thru flu shot clinics at all clinic sites is located on the VA’s external website, https://bit.ly/2RCHajR, as well as posted on both the website’s calendar (www.wallawalla.va.gov) and Walla Walla VA’s Facebook page at the “events” tab.
