Veteran Health Indiana provides COVID-19 vaccines and performs COVID-19 testing for Veterans.
VA is providing COVID-19 vaccines, as recommended and approved by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Get more information about COVID-19 vaccines at VA.
Veterans may schedule for COVID-19 vaccines by asking their primary care provider or by calling 317-988-4899. COVID doses 1 & 2 and the boosters can be given at the medical center.
Vaccines for COVID-19 are now available at Veteran Health Indiana for those who have completed the COVID-19 vaccine series and meets the following criteria:
- For Veterans, their spouses, caregivers, or CHAMPVA beneficiaries
- Age 18 and older
The COVID-10 vaccine is available at select VA Clinic locations, call 317-988-4899 to check availability.
Bring your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card to your appointment.
Are you interested in a second booster shot? We are now offering second booster to some individuals (with a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine) if you are:
o 50 years of age or older and your first booster dose was at least 4 months ago from last booster
o 18 years of age and older for Moderate to severely immune compromised and your first booster dose was at least 4 months ago (for some people, this will be a 5th dose)
o 4 months out from a booster dose and had Johnson and Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine for both your initial vaccine and your booster
You are best protected when you are up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccines! If you haven’t had your first booster, you should do it now. Here’s why:
o During the Omicron surge, people who were fully vaccinated were much less likely to get severely ill or die compared to people who were not
o People who were up-to-date on vaccination (had a booster) were even better protected
o Keeping up to date on COVID-19 vaccines can help you and your family stay healthy
