VA offering Free Flu Shots to Blythe area Veterans
BLYTHE, Calif. – The Blythe, California VA Rural Tele Health Outreach Clinic will host a Flu Shot Clinic for Veterans on Nov. 6 from noon to 5 p.m. and Nov. 7 from 8 a.m. to noon.
The Clinic, located at 1273 West Hobson Way, will also provide VA health care eligibility services at these times. If the Veteran is not yet enrolled in VA health care, they should bring their DD214 or other military discharge and the eligibility clerk will assist them. Blythe is about 25 miles west of Quartzsite, Arizona.
Veterans are encouraged to sign up for flu shots by calling (760) 921-1224.
Opened in 2010, the Blythe VA office is a unique link between Blythe area Veterans and the clinicians at the VA Loma Linda Healthcare System. The Tele Health program uses modern devices and communication networks to provide clinical care and patient education when the patient and provider are in separate locations.
If necessary, specialty care referrals can be made to the Loma Linda VA Medical Center. The Clinic is completely handicapped accessible, allowing full and easy access for all Veterans.
