COVID-19 Vaccines

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized two COVID-19 vaccines. VA will have a limited amount of vaccines to start. We've worked with the CDC and other federal partners to develop a phased plan. Our goal is to do the most good for the most people during this time.

Currently, VA is offering COVID-19 vaccine to Veterans already receiving care from the VA, based on CDC and VA risk criteria. If you're eligible to get a vaccine, your VA health care team will contact you.

Veterans who are not enrolled or do not currently receive care at VA can visit VA's Eligibility web page to learn more: Eligibility For VA Health Care | Veterans Affairs

The Washington DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center is currently offering COVID-19 vaccinations, by appointment only to Veterans who are:

• residing in the VA Community Living Center;
• age 65 or older;
• homeless or residing in group housing settings, such as Access Housing, US Veterans Initiative, Chesapeake Health Education Program, Safe Haven, Veterans on the Rise or VISTA, and have no other access to the vaccine;
• currently on hemodialysis, on the transplant list or have had an organ transplant;
• have cancer and are receiving IV chemotherapy at the medical center;
• and essential frontline workers.

If you meet the above criteria and are enrolled for care at the DC VA Medical Center, and have not yet been contacted to schedule your COVID-19 vaccine, call 202-745-4342 to make an appointment. Be sure to schedule two appointments since the vaccine is administered in two doses, 21 days apart.
