Vaccine eligibility

Coatesville VAMC is vaccinating all Veterans, including those who are not enrolled or eligible for VA health care, Veteran spouses, Veteran caregivers, and CHAMPVA beneficiaries, as defined by the SAVE LIVES Act.

Eligible Veterans
Anyone who served in the U.S. military is eligible to be vaccinated through VA.

Eligible Spouse
For COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, we define a spouse to include marriage, same-sex and common-law marriages. This includes a widow or widower of a Veteran. If you characterize your relationship as spousal, you can receive the vaccine.

Eligible Caregivers
For COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, we define a caregiver as a family member or friend who provides care to the Veteran. Caregivers may help the Veteran with personal needs like feeding, bathing, or dressing. They may also help the Veteran with tasks like shopping or transportation.

CHAMPVA Beneficiaries
Recipients of Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) benefits.

COVID-19 Vaccine Dose 3 for Immunocompromised People

The CDC has recommended a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine for moderately to severely immunocompromised people only. Eligible Veterans who received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are being contacted by their Coatesville VA clinical staff, but if a Veteran believes they may meet any of these criteria, they should reach out to their care team.

COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose

COVID-19 vaccine booster doses are available through our COVID-19 vaccine clinics at our three locations by appointment.

Per CDC, eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC's recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

Guidance for individuals who had two doses of Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine:

  • Individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine series at least 6 months ago are eligible for a booster shot if they are:
    • 65 years of age and older
    • 18 years of age and older and reside in long-term care settings
    • 18 years of age and older with underlying medical conditions
    • 18 years of age and older at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting

Guidance for individuals who received a single dose J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine:

  • Individuals who received a J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine at least 2 months ago and are 18 years of age or older should receive a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot.

Schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment

All Veterans and individuals eligible under the SAVE LIVES Act may call 610-384-7711, extension 5110, to schedule a vaccination appointment.

If you don't receive care at VA, we encourage you to pre-register online at least one hour before you go, to save time when you arrive. While at VA, you will need to wear a face mask, and physical distancing measures will be in place. For more about vaccinations at VA, visit www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/.

Note: Your employer, pharmacy, or local public health officials may offer you a COVID-19 vaccine. We encourage you to take any opportunity you have to get a vaccine at the most convenient location for you.

COVID-19 vaccine clinic locations

Currently, we are offering COVID vaccinations at our main medical center, the Delaware County and Spring City outpatient clinics. The vaccine clinic at the Coatesville campus is located at building 38, room b21 and also dispenses the flu vaccine.

Coronavirus vaccines available

Coatesville VAMC is now offering both the Moderna and the Janssen COVID-19 vaccines. At present, Coatesville VA Medical Center does not currently stock Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines.
