Maryland VA to offer "Drive-thru" flu clinics

This fall, the Maryland VA Health Care System has developed an innovative way to ensure that veterans receive their flu shots by commissioning Drive-thru flu clinics at four of the state's VA medical centers.

Clinics will take place at the Perry Point and Baltimore VA medical centers and the Glenn Burnie and Loch Raven outpatient clinics. The flu shots are free to veterans enrolled in the VA health care system. Veterans who wish to participate are asked to wear short-sleeved shirts to the Drive-thru clinics and to bring their VA identification card.

The clinics will take place in the parking lots at each of the facilities and in the main parking garage at the Baltimore VAMC. Here's a list of times and locations for each clinic:

  • Saturday, Oct. 3, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Perry Point VA Medical Center, Perry Point, Md.
  • Saturday, Oct. 3, 9 a.m. to noon, Glenn Burnie Outpatient Clinic, 808 Landmark Drive, Glenn Burnie, Md.
  • Saturday, Oct. 10, 9 a.m. to noon, Loch Raven Outpatient Clinic, 3901 The Alameda, Baltimore, Md.
  • Saturday, Oct. 17, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Baltimore VA Medical Center, 10 N. Green St., Baltimore, Md.
