COVID-19 Vaccinations for Veterans in the Community
VA is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other federal partners to provide COVID-19 vaccines to Veterans at VA medical facilities and in-network community locations.
VA medical facilities are distributing COVID-19 vaccines to Veterans who receive care at VA and are at a high risk from COVID-19 based on VA and CDC risk criteria. As states and territories implement their vaccine rollout plans, more opportunities are becoming available for eligible Veterans to receive vaccinations at in-network community locations. It’s important to note that states have adopted their own criteria and rollout plans may appear different than VA’s vaccination plan.
Veterans can find their nearest VA medical facility and identify in-network community urgent care locations and retail pharmacies through the VA Facility Locator. Eligible Veterans are encouraged to call the community care provider of choice to assure they have vaccines and whether an appointment is available.
Veterans are encouraged to download the Pharmacy Information Flyer to present at the community care location where the vaccine is being administered.
