St. Cloud VA offers flu vaccinations to eligible veterans and spouses, sites include Brainerd

To keep Veterans healthy during the flu season, the St. Cloud VA Health Care System has scheduled several flu shot clinics this fall. Flu shots for Veterans enrolled with the VA are free and an appointment is not necessary. The flu shots will be available locally at the Brainerd CBOC, located at 722 NW Seventh St., Brainerd, on Oct. 3, 11 and 19, from 9 a.m. to noon and 1-3 p.m. each day.

Spouses, significant others, caregivers, and veterans who are not enrolled for health care with the VA can also receive a seasonal flu shot at the St. Cloud VA Medical Center location only. A fee of $29 is required, and may be paid in cash or billed to the individual’s health insurance. Spouses, significant others, caregivers and non-enrolled Veterans should bring their insurance or Medicare card to the clinic.

All Veterans are encouraged to enroll in the VA health care system. For information on enrolling for VA health care, contact the St. Cloud VA HCS Eligibility Office at 320-255-6340.

Further updates to the flu shot program at the St. Cloud VA will be announced on the flu shot information line: 320-255-6444.
