Mobile Flu Clinic:
NAVAHCS is setting up a Mobile Flu Clinic in the community with a collaboration from our Community Partners The Mobile Flu Clinic set-up on the following dates:
Dec 8: American Legion Post 6 in Prescott from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and American Legion Post 40 in Chino Valley from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Dec 9 at VFW Post 10227 in Prescott Valley from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and American Legion Post 78 in Humboldt from 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

The nursing staff will have access to patient information to annotate in the Veteran’s record that they received their shot. Veterans will only need to bring their VA ID card with them to get their flu vaccine. If Veterans are not available on any of the dates above, they can come by the Drive-Thru Flu Clinic at the main hospital on Thursdays from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Unfortunately the Wreaths Across America Event this year is NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC however, it will be streamed LIVE for everyone to see on Saturday, December 19 on the Wreaths Across America Facebook page. There will be a small ceremony on Friday, December 18 with the National Cemetery Administration and NAVAHCS will broadcast that on our NAVAHCS Facebook page.
VA Medical Debts:
Due to COVID-19, the VA was not sending out medical bills to Veterans. That suspension is scheduled to end December 31.
Christmas/New Year’s Day Holiday:
The hospital and clinics will be closed on December 25 and January 1 for the Christmas and New Year’s Day Holiday. The Emergency Department is open 24/7.
This is a patient portal for Veterans. You can track your appointments, order refills of your medication and send a secure message to your provider (the best way to get in contact with your Team). You can even send a secure message to the Pharmacy if you have questions about your medication or anything pertaining to the Pharmacy. If you use the Veterans Video Connect (VVC) for your virtual appointments, you can now join your virtual appointment with the click of a button on MyHealtheVet. If you have not signed up – I highly recommend you do so ASAP. Click Here for he link. Any questions, please contact our MyHealtheVet Coordinator Tim Howe at 928-830-7644.
