COVID-19 vaccines and testing
Safe care is our mission. We provide COVID-19 vaccines to all Veterans at no cost.
2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines
Nebraska Western Iowa VA is providing the updated COVID-19 vaccine to Veterans only. We encourage caregivers and spouses to seek vaccination in the community.
Schedule a COVID-19 vaccine
Veterans can get their updated COVID-19 vaccine at one of our walk-in events at the Omaha VA medical center, in the ACC hallway on the 1st floor:
October 17 – November 17 from 12 p.m. - 3 p.m. M-F
Veterans are encouraged to call ahead to make your COVID-19 appointment for all other NWI 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.
VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System offers COVID-19 testing to Veterans enrolled in VA health care. Appointments are required. We are no longer performing walk-in COVID-19 testing without a provider evaluation. If you're interested in only being tested for COVID-19, please schedule your testing in advance by contacting us:
- Secure Messaging
- VA Health Chat
- Call 612-467-1100 or 866-414-5058 (toll free), or your local VA Community Clinic.
For the safety and convenience of all Veterans please visit your VA clinic only if you have an appointment.
