VA will see veterans in Elkin Dec. 6
The rural health program from the W.G. “Bill” Hefner VA Medical Center in Salisbury will provide VA services at the Elkin Public Library, 111 N. Front St., Elkin, on Tuesday, Dec. 6, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The program will provide VA services at the Yadkin County Public Library, 233 E. Main S., Yadkinville, on Monday, Dec. 5, from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Free flu shots will be available for all veterans currently using VA health care and to those veterans having a DD-214 and a valid driver’s license. VA nurse educators will also conduct a health care class from 11 until 11:30 a.m.
The team will provide former and current military members assistance on registration and health care education. Former men and women of the military who are not currently enrolled for VA health care benefits will need to bring a copy of their DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, to attach to their application for VA health care benefits. Please bring a copy, not the original DD Form 214. If you have lost your DD Form 214, you can request a copy from http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/; VA personnel will assist in completing enrollment applications, requesting DD Form 214s, and initiating MyHealtheVet online services.
