COVID-19 vaccines

We offer the COVID-19 vaccine to all Veterans, their spouses and caregivers at no cost. You can make an appointment during your next visit or by phone 24/7 at 888-336-8262. You can also request a vaccine during walk-in clinics at Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center in Aurora and PFC Floyd K. Lindstrom VA Clinic in Colorado Springs. Walk-ins are accepted at those locations from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday-Friday.

Enrolled Veterans are:

  • Any age AND
  • Eligible and registered for VHA care, AND
  • Receiving their care at VA ECHCS.

Veterans enrolled in VA ECHCS can request a vaccine appointment by sending a secure message via My HealtheVet to their primary care provider. They can also request an appointment during their next VA visit or by phone 24/7 at 888-336-8262.

Veterans interested in enrolling in VA health care should visit www.va.gov/health-care/how-to-apply.

Non enrolled Veterans may also request an appointment by phone at 888-336-8262. Shorter call center wait times may be experienced before 8 a.m. and after 6 p.m. To avoid delays at walk-in sites in Aurora and Colorado Springs, non enrolled Veterans, spouses and caregivers who’ve never received a COVID-19 vaccine from VA should first register online for a COVID-19 vaccine.

COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters and Additional Doses

When requesting a booster or additional dose, bring your CDC vaccination card. If you cannot find your card, we will give you a new one.

A booster shot is for people whose immune response may have weakened over time. We provide Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine boosters to Veterans, their spouses and caregivers 65 years or older, as well as adults with underlying medical conditions that make severe illness more likely, if it has been six months or longer since completing their initial Pfizer two-dose series. Individuals who attest to an increased risk of exposure, such as frontline workers, may also receive a booster Pfizer shot to provide an increase to their antibody protection after six months. At this time, FDA and CDC have not determined whether to recommend boosters for Moderna or J&J.

An additional dose is for people who may not have had a strong enough immune response from the first two doses. We offer a third doses to people who have moderate to severe immunocompromise and received either Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. This includes those with organ transplants and those diagnosed with conditions that are considered to have a similar level of immunocompromise. Data shows they are more at risk of serious, long-term illness from COVID-19. They may benefit from a third dose to make sure they have enough protection against COVID-19. Additional doses are not recommended for other people at this time.
