On March 30, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated their guidance on 2nd booster COVID-19 vaccinations:
All Veterans, their spouses and caregivers may receive free COVID vaccines! The Pfizer (mRNA) COVID-19 vaccine is currently available at the Charles George VA Medical Center and the Franklin, Hickory and Rutherford Country Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs).
No appointments are needed! Please remember to bring your CDC Vaccination Card or medication documentation of previous COVID-19 vaccinations.
The Western North Carolina VA Health Care System – comprised of Charles George VA Medical Center and Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) in Rutherford County, Hickory and Franklin, North Carolina – reinstituted visitation March 21, 2022.
Veterans without COVID 19 who are admitted to acute care (this does not include Warrior’s Recovery Unit and Community Living Center) are allowed one visitor per day between 12 and 8 p.m. No visitors under the age of 18 are permitted. Other restrictions remain in place. Visitors will be screened prior to entering the facility and will be required to remain masked for the duration of their visit. No visitors will be allowed to wait in common areas such as the canteen, waiting rooms, or vending areas. We ask that Veterans plan and take these restrictions into account before visiting our facilities.
These restrictions apply to all care locations, including health care facilities, ambulatory care centers, urgent care centers and emergency rooms.
Visitors who are ill or showing symptoms of illness should not come to the facility.
