COVID-19 UPDATES

We are currently in Phase 2 of our Moving Forward Plan. All VA Maryland Health Care System sites are open and scheduling virtual care appointments and limited face-to-face clinic appointments. 

For the safety of our patients, we encourage the continued use of virtual care options (telehealth and video appointments) for specialty care, primary care and mental health services.

If you will be visiting a VA Maryland Health Care System facility for a scheduled clinic appointment or emergency or urgent care visit, you will find safety measures we have put in place to help reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus. We encourage you to review the information linked below to prepare for your visit.

FREE FLU SHOTS FOR VETERANS

With the coronavirus still spreading, getting a flu shot this year is more important than ever to help prevent being infected by both viruses.

For Veterans who still need to get a flu shot, we recommend visiting a community pharmacy that is a part of the VA network. This includes the following: CVS, Costco, Kroger, Safeway, Walmart and Wegmans. (Walgreens is NOT participating this year.)

To be eligible for this benefit, you must have received care from the VA in the past 24 months. No appointments or referrals are required to get a free flu shot at a community pharmacy that is part of the VA network, but please call the pharmacy before visiting to ensure they are participating. Please inform the pharmacy that you are a Veteran and show them your VA Veterans Health Identification Card. You can also share with the pharmacy the appropriate flu shot billing information available on the page linked below. 

Veterans can also get free flu shots at other in-network community pharmacies and urgent care providers, at most scheduled VA clinic appointments, or at one of our drive-thru flu shot clinics. For more details, click the link below.
