The VA Eastern Colorado Healthcare System is offering flu vaccinations to all eligible Veterans! During late fall and winter seasons, annual epidemics of influenza lead to high rates of hospitalizations and deaths. Yearly vaccination against influenza is the most effective method for preventing influenza virus infections and its complications.
The Veteran Flu Clinic Hotline is now active! You may call the main hospital number at (303) 399-8020 or toll-free 1-(888) 336-8262. When prompted, enter ext. 7514 for the latest information regarding flu shot availability. We have the following events planned:
Garage atrium kiosk
Mon-Thurs 7-9am and 3-5pm
Garage Atrium kiosk
Hospital Atrium kiosk
Flu shots may be given at the time you have your Primary, Specialty, or Mental Health clinic appointment. (No walk-in appointments available)
When you come to the clinic, ask one of the nurses to check if you are due for a pneumovax injection. It is given twice in your lifetime after the age of 65 years. The vaccine protects you against 23 different kinds of pneumonia!
Additional options are available if you live closer to Aurora, Burlington, Lakewood, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, La Junta, or Alamosa clinics. Call the individual clinic for flu shot information.
