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


We are proud to be able to begin offering COVID-19 vaccine at the VA St. Louis Health Care System. 

Working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other federal partners, VA developed a phased plan to benefit the most people.  VA based this phased plan on CDC guidelines. Initial vaccine supply is limited, so, we are offering vaccines to Veterans based on their risk of getting infection, risk of significant disease, and the risk of passing it on to others. VA’s long-term goal is to vaccinate all Veterans and employees who are interested in receiving it.  You can find more information on VA’s COVID-19 Vaccine Plans at:  https://www.publichealth.va.gov/n-coronavirus/.
