High-dose flu shots

For Veterans who are 65 years of age or older, the regular-dose flu shot is now available but those who would like the high-dose flu shot from VA will be able to receive it after September 15, 2020. Either type will provide you protection from the flu, but the high dose is stronger and may be more effective in preventing the flu for older adults who are the highest risk.

Flu shots in the community

Eligible Veterans* can now receive their seasonal flu shots at more than 60,000 Community Care Network (CCN) retail pharmacies and urgent care locations. This replaces the Walgreens Retail Immunization Care Coordination Program, which ended in March 2020.

Learn more about these CCN locations on their website. You can access a map to all community in-network locations and a chart indicating what type of locations Veterans can go to in their regions to receive their flu shots. No appointment or VA referral is required. Veterans need to present a valid government-issued identification (e.g., Veteran Health ID card, Department of Defense ID card, state-issued driver's license or ID card, etc.).

*Veterans must be enrolled in the VA health care system.

Current information from the VA Palo Alto Health Care System is always posted on the website and on Facebook.
