MARTINSBURG, W.Va. – Beginning Sept. 3, seasonal flu shots will be available at the Martinsburg Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center. The best time to get a flu shot is October through December, as the peak of flu season is January through March.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that persons age 6 months or older receive a flu shot.  All Veterans regardless of age should get a flu shot.

If you are enrolled and have a VA ID card, you have four options for receiving your flu shot:

  • The most convenient option is the Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic, located in Parking Lot “O” - at the end of the parking lot across from the H.O.P.E. Center.  The drive-thru clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Follow the directional signs from the main entrance gate.
  • You may ask for a flu shot during your next scheduled primary care appointment.
  • If you do not have an appointment, walk-in flu shot clinics are open Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 1 - 3 p.m. with CPC teams 1, 2 and 3.
  • The medical center’s community based outpatient clinics (CBOC) offer walk-in flu shots:
    • Cumberland, Md. CBOC, 301-724-0061: Mon, Tue, Wed and Fri, 1 - 3 p.m.
