COVID-19 vaccines

On October 21, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identified and recommended several groups of people who should get a COVID-19 booster. Following this expanded guidance from CDC, the Orlando VA Healthcare System is now able to provide booster shots for the Pfizer-BioNTech, Janssen (J&J) and Moderna vaccines, as supply and capacity permit.

To schedule a COVID-19 vaccine or booster, call us at 407-631-0499 to schedule an appointment for your booster shot. Our staff will help you find a time that’s convenient for you. 

If you choose, you can also receive your booster shot at no cost to you outside of VA. You can locate a vaccine site at Vaccines.gov - Search for COVID-19 vaccine locations. Make sure to take your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card when you go!

What if I receive my booster shot or third dose outside of VA?

If you decide to receive your booster shot or third dose outside of VA, we encourage you to share this information with your Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) at your next VA appointment or via secure message using MyHealtheVet.

Can I get the flu shot at the same appointment as my COVID-19 vaccine?

Yes! Flu vaccines are recommended for everyone and can be given during your same visit for COVID-19 vaccination.  VA can only provide flu vaccines to employees, Veterans and those who qualify for VA Healthcare Benefits. Details: https://www.va.gov/health-care/eligibility/
