Va Partners With Walgreens For Flu Shots Etc.

Rate this question



In part:

" WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a first-of-its-kind partnership, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) today announced that it will join forces with retailer Walgreens to provide greater access to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-recommended vaccinations to Veterans across the country. This partnership grew out of a successful pilot program that began in Florida to provide flu vaccines to Veterans throughout the state. Based on those results, VA is expanding the pilot nationwide.

Through its nearly 8,200 locations nationwide, Walgreens will offer flu and other recommended vaccinations to Veterans. Pharmacists can administer vaccinations to Veterans and will leverage eHealth Exchange, through its Walgreens Cloud Electronic Health Records platform, to securely share immunization records with VA to help ensure complete patient medical records.

Vaccinations are available daily during all pharmacy hours with no appointment necessary and are subject to availability."

I always get my shots there and my closest Walgreens lets us make appointments on line, if we dont want to take chance as a walk in ,to have to wait too much..

For the past 2 years they advised getting the flu shot in October.

Okay we all see how the GOVERNMENT works (VA) and we believe what the (CDC) say's and jump onboard with these Vaccines? In this age of Computers and social media we need to educate ourselves away from the brainwashing Government telling us what's good for us.

just saying RESEARCH before you take a chance an become sick ( Paralyzed ) or yet Die. I know from experience because I was totally paralyzed from a Flu vaccine to the point they drilled a hole in my neck and hooked me to a machine to breath.

Also thy even had to tape my eyes shut because I couldn't even do that.

Same goes with these vaccines they pump into our children,

Flu vaccines.

Hep B with in hours after birth. In the U.S., hepatitis B has never been endemic and it is NOT primarily a "children's disease" or one that is a common threat to newborn babies .

Gardasil is another one BIG PHARM is paying off politician's to pump into our children and the list goes on an on.

Pete, I pulled out my last year's Walgreen shot record and had forgot something....

They had my Medicare card and my CHAMPVA card but they charged me $3.48 for the flu shot I got.

I thought maybe the charge was because they do give seniors something stronger then regular shot due to the new strains of bird flu.

But they charged a few other people too, maybe younger than me,who were very surprised because they thought the shot was free.

I have a friend who tries to talk me out of getting these shots but I am at the VAMC every week and would never go there without having the flu shot I think it is mandatory that VAMC employees get them as well.

If I had contact with public like you do I would have already taken the shot. I use my HMO Insurance at Savon Pharmacy and they never charge me.

Influenza vaccines are killers, life destroyers, and provide little or no benefit. The evidence is clear. A report published in the BMJ clarifies how these facts are ignored by health agencies. To get around them, they simply push fear of disease well past the point of absurdity. But the CDC and other health agencies have no other way to sell the unsellable.

The British Medical Journal (BMJ), one of the world’s most highly revered scientific medical publications, has published an article that condemns influenza vaccines and their marketing. The last sentence reads:

It’s no wonder so many people feel that “flu shots” don’t work: for most flus, they can’t.

Influenza vaccines don’t work as advertised. Nonetheless, they’re heavily marketed by governmental agencies through one consistent tactic: fear. Dr. Doshi describes how influenza vaccinations are sold:

Thank You Ms Berta, Wal-greens is much more convenient for me than going to my VAMC!

I'am getting older and I usually get a flu shot in late Oct early November sooner the better I always say!

I got my shot already last week at VAMC

I don't understand why some say not to get it? it won't help? The flu injections will not prevent anyone from getting the flu but it will make treatment a lot better in my opinion anyway.

I get one ever year rather or not they help why take chances? I still get my shot every year me and my spouse get them together.

Thanks for the Info Ms Berta

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
