Hines VA will make a visit to Ottawa American Legion

All area veterans may attend

The Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital’s Community Outreach Team will offer flu vaccinations and enroll interested veterans into VA health care Wednesday at the American Legion Post 33 in Ottawa.

The outreach team will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All area veterans can attend and meet with a Hines enrollment coordinator. VA health care is not required to receive a flu vaccination.

“Many Ottawa veterans may not know they have quality health care available right down the road at our La Salle Community Based Outpatient Clinic,” said Patrick Grimes, Hines VA’s outreach coordinator leading Wednesday’s event. “As a veteran, I want to help my fellow veterans access the resources and care they’ve earned through their service.”

American Legion Post 33 is located at 901 La Salle St. in Ottawa. Veterans should bring a copy of their DD-214 and a photo ID.
