Southern Arizona VA Health Care System
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized three 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
What to expect over the next several months
On Wednesday, January 27, 2020, SAVAHCS executive leadership hosted a Veteran Tele Town Hall to provide updates to the COVID-19 vaccination program at the SAVAHCS. Our leadership presented a lot of information to our Veterans, you can view the SAVAHCS Tele Town Slide Show to access the presentation and weblinks provided during the event.
We’ll have a limited amount of COVID-19 vaccines during this time. We’ll continue to follow our phased plan for providing vaccines to VA health care personnel and Veterans. Our goal is to do the most good for the most people. The Southern Arizona VA Health Care System (SAVAHCS) is now providing COVID-19 vaccines to Veterans age 65 and older. SAVAHCS staff is contacting Veterans, who are eligible based upon Centers for Disease Control (CDC) risk criteria, to schedule an appointment. We are also using an automated text and telephone program that connects Veterans to SAVAHCS staff to schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine.
Sign up HERE to help us understand your interest in getting a vaccine. We’ll send you updates on how the VA is providing vaccines across the country—and when you can get your vaccine, if you want one. We’ll also offer information and answers to your questions along the way.
