Flu Shot Information

As a Veteran who is enrolled with the VA Maryland Health Care System, you have several options to receive a free flu shot.

One of the simplest ways to get a flu shot is at an in-network community pharmacy. To be eligible, Veterans must be enrolled for VA health care and have received care through VA--either a VA or community provider--within the past 24 months.

To find an in-network community pharmacy near you, visit www.va.gov/find-locations and select “Community pharmacies (in VA’s network)” under “Facility type.” You can search for pharmacies by ZIP code, address or VA facility. You can also find an in-network community pharmacy by calling 1-877-881-7618 and press 1 for English, 1 for Veteran, then 2 for Claims/Billing.

No referrals are required to get a free flu shot at an in-network community pharmacy, but please remember to take your VA Health ID card and another form of ID, along with this postcard (or snap a picture of it with your smartphone) to show the pharmacy staff. They will use the coding information listed below to bill VA instead of charging you. Pharmacy staff can also go to www.va.gov/COMMUNITYCARE/flushot.asp and click on “Billing Information Card” for additional instructions or call 1-888-364-6331.

After receiving a flu shot at a community in-network pharmacy, please notify your VA primary care team so they can include this in your VA medical record. You can do this in person during your next scheduled primary care appointment, by mailing a copy of your flu shot information, or by sending it via Secure Messaging through MyHealtheVet.

Flu shots will also be available throughout the VA Maryland Health Care System as listed below:

  1. During scheduled primary or specialty care appointments at all VA Maryland Health Care System facilities.

  3. During a drive-thru flu shot clinic on Saturday, October 23, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the 1st level of the parking garage at the Baltimore VA Medical Center.

Please stay safe this flu season!
