Veterans Prepare for Flu Season

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

If you want to get a flu shot, there are several places to go. Nurses provided those shots at the VA Outpatient Clinic on Friday.

The clinic was open to veterans, and the public. The nurses were from the VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic, and Riverstone Health.

However, the veterans who showed up for a flu shot want to stay healthy.

Veteran, Dean Dewing, said, "I have a kidney transplant, and I got to be very careful about catching diseases, and anything like that."

Veteran, Charles Goldy said, "I know of some people who had got the flu and they were sick, and I don't wanna be that way."

Veterans enrolled in the VA health care program received a free flu shot at the clinic, and was $25.00 for non-veterans.
