This year's flu vaccine is expected to arrive by the third week of September. The annual flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself against the flu virus and reduce the risk of spreading it to others.

Monday, September 10, 2018

The Wilkes-Barre VA Medical Center is anticipating the arrival of this year’s flu vaccine at our facilities by the third week of September.  If you have a scheduled appointment in Wilkes-Barre in our Primary Care, Mental Hygiene, Specialty, or Surgical Clinic after the vaccine has arrived, you will receive your flu shot at your appointment. 

If you do not have a scheduled appointment in Wilkes-Barre in any of these clinics during flu season and would like a flu shot, please call 1-877-928-2621 between 7:30 AM and 4:00 PM.  Choose Option “2” to speak with an attendant who will schedule you an appointment to receive your flu shot.

If you prefer to walk-in without an appointment, walk-ins are available in the Wilkes-Barre Primary Care Clinic, 1 West, at the following times:

  • Evenings: September 25 & 27; October 2, 3, 4, 9, 11, 16, 18 & 23 from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
  • Saturdays: October 6 and October 20 from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
