The seasonal flu vaccine is now available at the VA San Diego Healthcare System.

Free seasonal flu shots for all enrolled Veterans in the VA health care are available from September 26 - December 30, 2022, at the Jennifer Moreno Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center and community clinics. 

Flu vaccines are highly recommended to reduce the chance of getting sick with flu and the spread of flu to others.

"It's free, available at various locations, quick and easy, and most importantly, it could save your life or the life of someone you love." said VA San Diego Health System Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. David Looney.
