VA and satellite clinics set times for flu shots
The Grand Junction Veterans Affairs Medical Center is offering flu vaccinations from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. on weekdays at the center, 2121 North Ave.
The medical center will host two drive-through vaccination clinics as well, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 1. Veterans are asked to bring proof of their veteran status to the drive-through clinics and should wear short sleeves to make getting a shot easier.
