White River Junction VA Healthcare System has begun offering Covid-19 vaccinations to veterans of all ages who are enrolled in VA healthcare.
With the greater and more consistent availability of Covid-19 vaccine, White River Junction VA Healthcare System is now able to schedule enrolled veterans of all ages to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. For an appointment call 802-296-5151.
If you are a veteran not enrolled in VA Healthcare, contact the enrollment office beforehand to begin your application, at 802-295-9363 extension 5118.
“It’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how Covid-19 vaccines work in real-world conditions,” the White River Junction VA said in a news release.
Even after vaccination, the VA reminds veterans and employees to:
- Wear a face covering
- Watch your distance (stay 6 feet apart)
- Wash hands frequently
“The VA is eager to begin administering the vaccine and asks all veterans and VA health care personnel for their patience when calling in to schedule as the call volume has increased,” the statement continued.
“Our goal is to offer a Covid-19 vaccine to all veterans who want one. Legislation is currently going through Congress that if passed, would allow us to offer vaccines to all veterans, and possibly their caregivers and spouses. Until this legislation passes and becomes public law, we won’t know who will be eligible,” the WRJ VA states on their website.
