Eligibility Requirements and Scheduling Your Appointment
Wilmington VAMC will be contacting eligible Veterans directly to schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments. The vaccination clinic will be open to Veterans enrolled or eligible to be enrolled in VA health care with a priority focus on Veterans 75 years and older.
In order to keep our phone lines open for Veterans with other health care-related matters, we are asking Veterans to please do not call Wilmington VAMC to schedule COVID-19 vaccinations.
This is primarily a scheduled vaccination clinic and there will be limited availability for walk-in vaccinations for Veterans aged 75 years and older who are eligible for VA health care. Veterans not currently enrolled in VA health care should bring a copy of their DD-214 and other identification so Wilmington VAMC can confirm eligibility and begin enrollment.
Walk-in vaccinations are available to Veterans aged 75+ enrolled in VA health care with last names starting with:
- A – M please arrive between 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
- N – Z please arrive 1 – 3 p.m.
Wilmington VAMC will make every effort to vaccinate all Veterans aged 75 and above that show up on during the event, but please note that we can only vaccinate Veterans enrolled in VA health care. Wilmington VAMC will work with eligible Veterans who are unable to receive the vaccine during the event to schedule future vaccinations.
Wilmington VAMC ask that if you receive your vaccination at this event, you are available to get your second dose of the vaccine in 21 days with us. This will ensure proper documentation for your medical records and allow us to accurately account for vaccine inventory.
Enroll in VA Health Care
If you are a Veteran who has not enrolled in VA health care, you can visit www.va.gov/health-care/eligibility for eligibility and enrollment information.
Wilmington VAMC will have staff on site on to register Veterans who are not yet enrolled in VA health care. Veterans who are not yet enrolled in VA health care are encouraged to bring a copy of their DD-214.
