Flu shots available for veterans


The Kerrville VA Medical Center is now providing influenza vaccinations to all enrolled veterans. The best time to get the flu vaccination is usually in October through November.
An annual flu vaccine is recommended for the following groups of veterans:
• Persons at high risk for flu-related complications including those ages 50 years old and over
• Persons of any age with chronic medical illnesses
• Persons who live with or care for persons at high risk. Influenza vaccine is also recommended for anyone else who wants to reduce the risk of contracting influenza.
Veteran patients can receive flu shots as walk-ins through their Primary Care Teams during operating hours between 8 am and 4 pm, Monday through Friday - excluding holidays.
