The best time to get a flu shot is October through December, as the peak of flu season is January through March. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that persons age 6 months or older receive a flu shot. All veterans, regardless of age, should get a flu shot. Plan your visit today and protect yourself, your family and those around you.

If you are unable to make any of these walk-in clinics, Veterans are encouraged to ask their VA provider for a flu shot during their next scheduled primary care appointment. If you are a veteran and not enrolled in VA health care, please call the Cheyenne VAMC Business Office at 888-483-9127, ext. 7150.
