Butler, PA – The Butler VA Health Care System will be offering flu vaccination clinics to Veterans at the main campus and Community-Based Outpatient Clinics this fall. A complete schedule of flu clinic dates, times and locations is available here: www.butler.va.gov/pdf/2020FluShotSchedule_ButlerVA.pdf.
“As we fight the flu and COVID-19 together, the safety of our Veterans continues to be our top priority,” said Butler VA Director Mr. Kevin Amick. “Annual vaccination is widely recognized as the best method for preventing disease and death related to influenza. This year, choose the Butler VA for your flu shot.”
Flu shots are available to all Veterans. Veterans currently enrolled at the Butler VA Health Care System should present their VA issued health identification card (VHIC). Veterans not currently enrolled at the Butler VA should present one form of ID and provide a copy of their military discharge (DD214). Non-Veterans, to include spouses and dependents who do not have military service, are not eligible for a flu shot from the Butler VA.
Flu shots provided at the Abie Abraham VA Clinic (located at 353 N. Duffy Rd. Butler, PA. 16001) will be administered in the parking lot at a designated “drive-thru” point. Veterans will not have to enter the Health Care Center facility to receive a flu shot. Instead, signage will be posted to direct vehicle travel and Veterans will remain in their vehicle.
Flu shots provided at the Armstrong, Clarion, Cranberry Township, Lawrence, and Mercer County VA Clinic locations will be administered inside the clinics. Appropriate physical distancing and wearing of a CDC approved face mask or face shield is required. Veterans should have their cell phone with them for check-in purposes.
For more information about the flu clinics, Veterans may contact VA Butler’s Outreach Coordinator Ron Collett at 878-271-6677.
