Free Flu Shots for Local Veterans
Flu season is here. And with the healthcare industry being so overwhelmed dealing with Covid-19, health professionals are recommending that everyone that can get a flu shot, to get a flu shot. Flu shots are available at most pharmacies and through your doctor's office. And if you are a veteran, you have another option that's free of charge.
According to WBNG, Binghamton area veterans can get free flu shots at the Veterans Affair Clinic in Binghamton. The report states that there will be a drive-thru clinic set up in the parking lot of the Veterans Affair building every Tuesday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. . No appointment will be necessary.
The drive-thru flu shot clinic means that you won't even have to get out of your car. You can just pull up, and they will come and administer the vaccine while you sit in your vehicle.
Some people report soreness in the muscles in the arm that they received the shot in, but the needle itself is so small, you barely feel the vaccine being injected.
The Binghamton VA Clinic is located at 203 Court Street in Binghamton. You can contact them for more information at 607-772-9100 or online by clicking here.
Veterans, thank you for your service, and please stay safe.
