Tuesday, September 17, 2013 — Members of the Rural Health program team from the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center in Salisbury will provide free flu shots and VA services at the Star Town Hall, 222 South Main Street, Star, N.C. Sept. 18, 2013 from 10 a.m. until noon.

 

Free flu shots will be available for all veterans currently using VA health care and to those veterans possessing a DD-214 and a valid photo ID.

 

The team will provide former and current military members assistance on registration and health care education.  Former military members who are not currently enrolled for VA health care benefits will need to bring a copy of their DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, to attach to their application for VA health care benefits.  If you have lost your DD Form 214, you can request a copy from http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/; VA personnel will assist in completing enrollment applications, requesting DD Form 214s, and initiating MyHealtheVet online services.
