VA Orlando health care top stories.
As COVID-19 numbers have dropped in our catchment area, we are allowing limited visitation at the Orlando VA Medical Center on inpatient units and are restarting face-to-face Veteran programming.
Guidance for visitors is for NON-COVID inpatients at the medical center on the 3rd and 4th floor
Guidance for visitors at the Community Living Center
Veterans who require the assistance of a caregiver to attend an outpatient appointment are permitted to have one companion.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as a cough, runny/stuffy nose, fatigue, sore throat, headache, muscle pain, fever or sneezing, call the VISN 8 Clinical Contact Center (1-877-741-3400) first – before visiting a hospital or clinic. Our clinicians are available 24/7 to address your concerns, schedule a virtual appointment with a licensed health care professional in the comfort of your home or wherever you may be, or assist if you need to get tested for COVID-19.
COVID-19 vaccines: All Veterans, spouses and caregivers can get a COVID-19 vaccine at VA by appointment or walk-in clinic. Visit our vaccine information page
Now is the time to start preparing. Never underestimate the value of being prepared. Emergency preparedness resources to assist Veterans before, during and after a hurricane or other emergencies are available at https://www.va.gov/va-orlando-health-care/programs/emergency-preparedness/
