COVID-19 Vaccine from VA Eastern Colorado
Following FDA authorization and CDC recommendations, VA ECHCS offers COVID-19 vaccinations to every eligible Veteran, as well as Veteran spouses and caregivers. We encourage you to consider getting a COVID-19 vaccine to help protect you and your family and community.
- Enrolled Veterans are Veterans of any age who are eligible and registered for VA health care and receiving their care at VA ECHCS. Enrolled Veterans can request a COVID-19 vaccine appointment by sending a secure message to their provider via My HealtheVet, requesting an appointment during their next visit or by calling 888-336-8262 (24/7). If you decide to get a COVID-19 vaccine outside of VA, you are encouraged to share your latest vaccination status with your VA health care team.
- 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. Find out how to apply for VA health care benefits.
Your safe care is our mission. We want you to know that we have safety measures in place to protect you, other Veterans and our staff. Everyone who enters our facilities must wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose and complete COVID-19 symptom screening.
COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters & 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 offer boosters to people who completed an initial COVID-19 series with Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, if they had their second dose at least six months ago and are 65 years or older, 18 and older with underlying medical conditions, or an adult living in a long-term care setting or living or working in a high-risk settings. The CDC also recommends a booster for adults who received a J&J vaccine at least two months ago. CDC's recommendations allow a mix-and-match dosing for booster shots.
- An additional dose is for people who may not have had a strong enough immune response from the first two doses. We offer 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.
