, LA — More than 100 Veterans took advantage of the first Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic at the Overton Brooks VA Medical Center, Sept. 25. A second Drive-Thru opportunity is planned for this Saturday, Oct. 2.
The Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic is scheduled from 8 a.m.- noon, for enrolled Veterans and employees, at the main facility in Shreveport. Everyone is encouraged to get the flu shot.
Veterans may arrive at the main hospital entrance and receive the flu vaccine without ever leaving their vehicle. There is no charge for the flu shot.
The Shreveport VA is located at 510 E. Stoner Avenue in Shreveport. Flu shots are also offered during any primary care appointment or walk-in.
Veterans who receive care at one of the outpatient Veterans clinics may take advantage of Flu Shot Clinics each Wednesday, Oct. 6 thru Dec. 22; however, the Monroe Veterans Clinic will have a last flu clinic on Dec. 15.
Safe Care is the mission at the Shreveport VA. Consider the flu and COVID-19 vaccines for yourself, your family, and your community. But flu season is here, and the flu shot is the best way to slow the spread of flu from person to person.
