CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa (WTAJ) – The James E. Van Zandt VA Medical Center is hosting a drive-through flu vaccine clinic at the Johnstown community-based outpatient clinic.

The vaccine clinic will take place on Saturday, September 24, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The outpatient clinic is located at 598 Galleria Drive.

Already enrolled Veterans, and those enrolled in the Caregiver Support Program are encouraged to attend. Veterans who are not yet enrolled in VA healthcare can also receive a Flu Vaccine by bringing a copy of their DD214 with them to the clinics.
