COVID-19 Vaccines

VA is providing the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccines, as authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Supply varies by facility. Get more information about COVID-19 vaccines at VA.

We are working to vaccinate as many eligible individuals as quickly as possible.

Easier access to vaccines and more people eligible

VA is adding walk-in COVID-19 vaccinations at all VA facilities and outpatient clinics that offer COVID-19 vaccines. Please check hours for vaccination clinics.

Congress has passed a law which allows us to offer COVID-19 vaccines to the following groups who are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine:

  • Veterans
  • Spouse of a Veteran
  • Caregivers of a Veteran
  • Recipients of Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) benefits

If you don't receive care at VA, we encourage you to pre-register online at least one hour before you go, to save time when you arrive. While at VA you will need to wear a face mask, and physical distancing measures will be in place. For more about vaccinations at VA, visit: www.va.gov/covidvaccine.

Note: Your employer, pharmacy, or local public health officials may offer you a COVID-19 vaccine. We encourage you to take the first opportunity you have to get a vaccine at the most convenient location for you.

COVID-19 Vaccines

On April 1, 2021, Congress passed a new law, SAVE LIVES Act, which allows VA medical centers to schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for more Veterans and spouses and caregivers of Veterans. Appointments will be scheduled based upon available COVID-19 vaccine supply. Please check back often for updates. We appreciate your patience as we prepare to offer more vaccines. If you'd like to get regular updates about COVID-19 vaccines at VA, sign up to stay informed.

The Washington DC VA Medical Center is currently administering COVID-19 vaccinations by appointment only to Veterans and those cited as part of the SAVE LIVES Act. To schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment with the DC VA Medical Center, call 202-745-4342 during business hours.

Your employer, pharmacy, or local public health officials may offer you a COVID-19 vaccine. We encourage you to take the first opportunity you have to get a vaccine at the most convenient location for you.

If you're not currently receiving health care through VA, find out if you're eligible for VA health care and how to apply.
