[ARCHIVED] VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System Walk-in COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics

VAPHS University Drive Campus

VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System (VAPHS) will host walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinics on Saturday, Jan. 16 and Monday, Jan. 18 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at our University Drive campus in Oakland.

 To receive a vaccine on these dates, Veterans must: 

  • be 75 years or older
  • be eligible for and enrolled in VA health care
  • receive health care at VA Pittsburgh.

 If you meet all three of the above criteria, please stop by our University Drive campus during these walk-in clinics. No appointment is necessary.

 If you meet all three of the above criteria but cannot make it to these walk-in clinics, please reach out to your primary care team to request an appointment to receive the vaccine.

 VAPHS is providing the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. This vaccine requires two doses, given approximately 21 days apart.

 VA worked with the CDC to develop a phased distribution plan to maximize the benefit of COVID-19 vaccines. In these first weeks, there is limited vaccine available. As vaccine supply increases and we move through the distribution plan, care teams will contact Veterans to let them know of their options. Our goal is to eventually offer a COVID-19 vaccine to all Veterans and VA health care personnel who choose to be vaccinated.
