COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The health and safety or our Veterans and staff remain a top priority for VA. Vaccine remains the best way to protect everyone from serious illness. Protect yourself, your family, and your community by scheduling your appointment today. COVID-19 vaccine has been proven to be effective in diminishing the spread of the virus within our communities.

Appointment only | Call 509-434-7957 to schedule | Monday-Friday | 7:30am – 4:00pm 

  • We offer the Moderna 2-dose and the Janssen (J&J) 1-dose vaccines for all eligible age groups.
  • The CDC now recommends a third vaccine dose for certain groups of people with weakened immune systems who received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. 
  • If you are an enrolled Veteran who received a vaccination outside of the VA, please report it to your primary care team. 
  • If you remain undecided about the COVID-19 vaccine, click here to learn more about the importance of protecting yourself, family members, and the community. 

COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters

Who is eligible for a booster? Anyone age 18 or older who: 

  • Completed the Moderna two-dose series at least 6 months ago
  • Received the Johnson & Johnson single dose at least 2 months ago

Why is a booster important? 

  • COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness fades over time.  A booster will recharge your body’s ability to protect you from COVID-19! For more information about the COVID-19 booster, visit CDC.gov
  • VA will continue to offer COVID-19 vaccines and boosters to those authorized under Save Lives Act while supplies last. 

Veterans are asked to bring their valid VA ID card with them and the CDC Vaccination Card.
