BILLINGS — The Montana VA Health Care System announced that they will have a walk-in flu clinic for veterans in Billings, October 1st from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m..

The location will be at the Dr. Joseph Medicine Crow VA Clinic (1775 Spring Creek Lane) Pod B lobby.

Flu shots are free for enrolled veterans.

Health and wellness information will also be available. Veterans will be able to ask Montana VA health care professionals techniques on feeling better so they can enjoy the things they love for years to come.

Getting a flu shot is the best way to slow the spread of influenza.

VA and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that everyone age six months and older get a flu vaccine each year.

For Veterans wanting a flu shot, but not able to attend the Walk-in Flu Clinic on October 1st, please contact your local VA clinic to inquire about dates and times that flu shots will be available.

The Montana VA Health Care System serves over 47,000 enrolled Veterans across Montana—an area roughly 147,000 square miles in size.

Veterans are cared for by a staff of nearly 1,200 (over a third are veterans themselves) at 17 sites of care across the state.
