Walgreens will again be offering flu shots

Michael J. O'Steen Adjutant - 9/6/2018

Walgreens will again be offering flu shots to the US Departments of Veterans Affairs (VA) patients.  As a summary:


•       National Partnership between the Department of Veterans Affairs and Walgreens to vaccinate VA patients

•       VA patient can walk into most Walgreens pharmacies and present the voucher or present with their VA ID card and get a no cost flu shot, quantities are limited

•       VA patient’s clinical record is electronically updated by Walgreens – no paperwork to take to the VA


The vaccination covered under the voucher is Quadrivalent for this year and noted on the voucher. 

How it works:


•       Patient may print and bring completed Voucher (see attached 2018 voucher) to Walgreens, along with his/her VA identification card

•       Patient provides his/her Social Security Number

•       Walgreens administers flu shot and system updates patient’s VA clinical record


Download the voucher below and print it, however if a Veteran presents without a voucher, but has VA ID and other form of ID, Walgreens should have a code on-hand to administer flu shot.
 
Walgreens is also now in the Tricare network and can provide flu shots under that benefit.
