White River Junction VA begins Covid-19 vaccination for veterans

White River Junction VA Healthcare System began Covid-19 vaccination with the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine Dec. 21 following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s emergency use authorization for this vaccine.

As the roll out continues, the teams deploying it are reviewing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on risk stratification.

Since Dec. 21, the facility has made tremendous progress in administering vaccines to healthcare personnel as part of the initial phase of Covid-19 vaccine delivery, according to a recent press release.

Dec. 31 marked White River Junction VA’s transition to the next phase, beginning to offer the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine to veterans who are at the greatest risk for infection and severe illness based on the CDC’s guidelines.

As more vaccine supplies become available, the VA will initiate contact to eligible veterans for scheduling. There is no need to preregister or come to a facility to sign up; however, veterans interested in taking the vaccine when it becomes available can sign up at:  va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/stay-informed.
