Covid Vaccine and the VA

As to the amount of phone calls regarding The Covid vaccine. Veterans can sign up at the web address below just to let the VA know they are interested in receiving it.

Called the VA to verify on who is eligible for receiving the vaccine from the VA. The spouses would have to be enrolled in either Tricare for Life or ChampVA  to be eligible

  • But as of now they are only vaccinating  Veterans in the following group:
  • VA health care personnel. Vaccinating our VA health care personnel helps us continue to provide care for Veterans.
  • Veterans living in our long-term care facilities
  • Veterans who receive care at VA and are at high risk from COVID-19 based on VA and CDC risk criteria. At many VA health care facilities, this group includes all Veterans who are at least 75 years old. Each facility will determine when Veterans in this group can receive a vaccine. They’ll base this decision on vaccine availability, local needs, as well as the strict storage and handling requirements of the vaccines.

Some designated family caregivers may qualify for vaccines:

  • Family caregivers who are enrolled in our Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC) are eligible for vaccination when the Veteran they care for becomes eligible. If the Veteran you care for meets the criteria above, both you and the Veteran may be able to get vaccinated now. Vaccinating caregivers helps us support and protect Veterans.
