Free Saturday flu clinic for veterans in Fayetteville, Wilmington, and Jacksonville

NORTH CAROLINA (WWAY) — VA Facilities in Southeastern North Carolina will host free flu shots at the Fayetteville Health Care Clinic, Wilmington Health Care Clinic, and the Jacksonville Community Clinic (Henderson Main) this coming Saturday, Nov. 7, and Dec. 5 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The flu shot is available for all Veterans registered for care within the Fayetteville VA NC Coastal Health Care System at no cost and no required appointment. To limit the spread and exposure of COVID-19, Veterans, guests, and VA staff must wear a mask while on VA property.

“We have a little more than 78,000 Veterans registered for care in Southeastern North Carolina, and as of today, we have only vaccinated a little more than 6,000 Veterans,” Dr. Jeff Morgan, Chief Medical Officer, Fayetteville VA NC Coastal Health Care System, said. “Our goal is to vaccinate as many Veterans as we can before the cold weather really sets in, and the uncertainties of the COVID-19 start to unfold in the winter months. Our drive-thru flu shot clinics are quick, safe, and we have them at all of our sites of care throughout southeastern North Carolina.”

Veterans experiencing a fever, cough, or having difficulty breathing will not be given a shot and are urged not to attend.
