The seasonal flu vaccine is available and free to all eligible and enrolled Veterans at any of the Department of Veterans Affairs Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care System facilities.
Veterans seeking a flu shot should contact their Patient Aligned Care Team. Veterans who have not yet enrolled to receive VA health care should bring their DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, or other proof of honorable military service to the nearest VA Gulf Coast medical facility to enroll.
