How to get a COVID-19 vaccine at VA

Here’s how to get your vaccine at a VA health facility near you:

  • Visit a VA health facility near you, go to the facility's vaccine clinic during walk-in hours. Be sure to check the walk-in hours before you go. When you arrive, you may need to wait for the staff to prepare your vaccine.
  • Or call the facility to schedule an appointment. Our staff will help you find a time that’s convenient for you.

Here’s what to know before you arrive:

  • If you don't receive care at VA, we encourage you to pre-register online at least 1 hour before you go to a walk-in clinic. This will save you time when you arrive.Sign up to get a COVID-19 vaccine at VA
