The St. Cloud V.A. is undergoing some major construction. Public Affairs Officer Barry Venable from the St. Cloud V.A. joined me on WJON. He says this process will impact the whole of the VA Medical campus site for the next 2 years.
The St. Cloud V.A. is offering COVID-19 booster shots for veterans by appointment only right now. Barry Venable is the Public Affairs Officer from the St. Cloud V.A. He says veterans 18 and over who received their last Moderna COVID-19 vaccination 6 months ago or later are eligible for a booster.
The St. Cloud VA is offering both drive thru and walk up flu vaccinations for veterans this fall. The drive thru flu shots will be held in the MAC parking lot September 28-30 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Brainerd will be hosting drive thru flu shots September 22-23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
At this time a booster or 3rd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine hasn't been approved for everyone but has been approved for those who have a compromised immune system. St. Cloud VA Public Affairs Officer Barry Venable says if veterans qualify for this they should contact the St. Cloud V.A. primary physician and they will work to get them that 3rd dose as soon as possible.
