COVID-19 vaccines and testing
Starting Nov. 1, 2021, the Cheyenne VA we be carrying Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID-19 vaccines to offer boosters under Emergency Use Authorization. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose (Moderna or J&J. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots. VA will offer booster vaccines to Veterans receiving care at VA and VA employees, and all other Veterans, spouses, caregivers and CHAMPVA recipients under the authority of the SAVE LIVES Act, as supply and capacity permits.
Why should I get a booster shot?
The initial vaccine series remains effective in reducing the likelihood of infection and preventing severe illness, hospitalization, or death among those infected. The purpose of a booster is to “boost” antibody protection back up when it has decreased over time.
How do I schedule an appointment?
The Cheyenne VA Medical Center and the Loveland VA Clinic offers a Walk In clinic, Monday- Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Primary Care waiting areas. Please bring your Vaccination Card.
You can also request an appointment at your facility for your booster shot whether you received your initial series at VA or outside of VA. Please make sure to bring your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card! This is particularly important if your initial series was given outside of VA.
Can I get the flu shot at the same appointment as my COVID-19 vaccine?
Yes! Flu vaccines are recommended for everyone and can be given during your same visit for COVID-19 vaccination.
