The safety of Veterans and VA employees continues to be our top priority as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the omicron variant quickly becoming the most prevalent strain of the virus, it’s now more important than ever to ensure you are protected by getting your COVID-19 vaccines and booster shot.
Vaccines are our best shot to protect people from COVID-19, slow transmission, and reduce the likelihood of new variants emerging. Breakthrough cases will still happen, but as with other variants, vaccines have remained effective at preventing severe illnesses, hospitalization, and death.
You can get your vaccine or booster on a walk-in basis at our COVID vaccination clinic. The clinic is located at the medical center in Salt Lake City and is open Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m.– 4:00 p.m. (Closed holidays).
Watch A Boost of hope for the New Year
While at the medical center or community clinic to get a booster, vaccine, or just for an appointment, we continue to require face coverings for everyone – Veterans, employees, and visitors. This policy remains in place at all VA facilities even if state or local masking requirements change. We are also screening, practicing physical distancing, frequent handwashing, and other safety measures.
If you are hearing impaired and need to read lips, please let a VA employee know and we will accommodate your needs.
You can read more about ways to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). You can also learn the latest on the omicron variant at Omicron Variant: What You Need to Know | CDC.
Your safe care is our mission.
