The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized the first COVID-19 vaccine. VA will have a limited amount of this vaccine to start. We’ve worked with the CDC and other federal partners to develop a phased plan. Our goal is to do the most good for the most people during this time.

- If you have not yet gotten a COVID-19 vaccine or booster, now’s the time to get that done. Current vaccines work against other variants, especially for people who get their booster shots. Learn more about vaccine availability at https://www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/
- If you are vaccinated, or have recovered from a previous COVID-19 infection, you may still get the COVID-19 infection. Your illness may be mild or you could have no symptoms at all; however, you can infect others. That’s why it’s still important to mask in indoor settings, practice physical distancing, wash your hands frequently, and get tested if you have symptoms.
