VA Long Beach and American Legion hosting a COVID-19 Testing and Flu Shot clinic November 7, 2020

Please call 562-826-5151 to schedule your appointment for the November 7 Pop-Up Clinic.

This flu season, it is more important than ever to look out for the health and safety of you, your loved ones, and the community we share.

Studies from 2017 and 2018 have shown that flu vaccination reduces flu-related deaths, Intensive Care Unit (ICU) admissions, and ICU length of stay. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have already seen many of our country’s hospitals reach capacity. The less resources spent on flu means the better equipped we are to take care of our Veterans with more critical needs.

Flu season has just begun. This time, it’s not about any one of us. It’s about all of us. Show up and minimize the impact of COVID-19 and the flu.

VA Long Beach and American Legion are hosting a COVID-19 Testing and Flu Shot clinic for Veterans enrolled in VA health care as follows:

Date: November 7, 2020, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.
