COVID-19 Vaccines

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized three COVID-19 vaccines. Congress has passed a new law that allows us to offer COVID-19 vaccines to more people. VA is now able to offer vaccine to the following groups who are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine at VA when their local VA facilities have enough vaccine:

  • Veterans
  • Spouse of a Veteran
  • Caregivers of a Veteran
  • Recipients of Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) benefits

The best way to stay informed is to sign up to tell us you'd like to get a COVID-19 vaccine at VA. Your local VA facility will then contact you when they have a vaccine for you.

For your continued health and safety during this pandemic, please don't come to a VA health facility to request a COVID-19 vaccine without an appointment unless you are coming to a specific scheduled event such as a walk-in clinic or drive-through clinic that does not require an appointment.

Note: Your employer, pharmacy, or local public health officials may offer you a COVID-19 vaccine. We encourage you to take the first opportunity you have to get a vaccine at the most convenient location for you.

Vaccine is available to all veterans - even those not enrolled with VA - regardless of age. Call 203-932-5711 ext. 7784, 5627 or 7754 to schedule an appointment.

Tips for the vaccination process:

  • To help us with social distancing, where possible, please come to your appointment by yourself. 
  • Please arrive no more than 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.
  • Wear short sleeves or have your sleeves rolled up.
  • If getting your second dose, remember to bring your vaccination card given to you when you received your first dose.


For the latest on our vaccination efforts, join us Monday, April 12 from 3-4pm for a Virtual Town Hall. Join using any device with a web browser.
