The VA Mobile Clinic will hold a flu clinic in Laramie on Monday, Oct. 6. The Flu Shot Clinic is for all registered Veterans and will be administered at no charge to the Veteran.

“We want everyone to get the flu shot,” said Anne Duda, assistant nurse manager of ambulatory care and event organizer.  “We received our shipment of vaccine late last week, and are excited to see our Veterans get vaccinated as quickly as possible, before the flu season hits.”

Veterans who are unable to make the Flu Shot Clinics, will be able to get a free vaccination during their next scheduled appointment, or can schedule an appointment through their patient aligned care team.

The clinic in Laramie will be held from 10 a.m. until 3:00 a.m. at the Mobile Telehealth Clinic at 112 South Fifth Street.

Clinics will also be held in Wheatland on Wednesday, October 8 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and in Torrington on Thursday, October 9 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

The Mobile Telehealth Clinic in Laramie provides services to veterans who have minor health issues. House says the advantage of a Telehealth Clinic is that the individuals at the clinic are able to make medical observations over the internet and through camera communication with doctors in Cheyenne.

“For example, if they have an ear infection, the individual in Laramie would be able to place the probe into, or the camera into, the patient’s ear, and then the doctor here would be able to see what’s going on with that veteran,” says Public Affairs Officer Samuel House.

The clinic is open every Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and every other Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Those wishing to schedule an appointment at the Telehealth Clinic can do so by calling 1-888-483-9127, ext. 3816.
