COVID-19 vaccines and testing

Safe care is our mission. We provide COVID-19 vaccines to all Veterans at no cost.

COVID-19 vaccines

Minneapolis VA is providing COVID-19 vaccines to Veterans only. We encourage caregivers and spouses to seek vaccination in the community.

Schedule a COVID-19 vaccine

COVID vaccines are available at the Minneapolis VA medical center and VA Community Clinics during regular appointments and to schedule. For an appointment:

  • Call ; the Call Center is open weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. 
  • Veterans can also call their local VA Community Clinic.

We offer Pfizer vaccines at all of our locations.

If you have questions about getting vaccinated

Contact your health care provider if you have questions about if the vaccine is right for you. We encourage everyone to choose to be vaccinated. Vaccines will slow the spread of the virus, protecting you and your family, friends and neighbors. For more information, please visit CDC Benefits of Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine.
