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

 Dublin VAMC staff continues to work diligently to offer and administer COVID-19 vaccines as quickly and efficiently as possible to VA employees and Veterans who receive care at VA and who meet current CDC guidelines (healthcare workers and veterans over the age of 65). The Carl Vinson VA Medical Center is also offering the COVID-19 Vaccine to Caregivers who meet the requirements and are registered with the VA Caregiver Program. Veterans must be enrolled to receive care at the Carl Vinson VA Medical Center or one of its seven outpatient clinics to be scheduled for a vaccine.

The VA is now offering eligible Veterans to Direct Schedule their COVID-19 vaccine appointment through VEText. An easy convenient way to schedule your appointment! A text message will be sent to eligible Veterans asking if they are interested in making an appointment and to reply with a date and time that they are available e.g. 3/5 at noon. The system will reply if that date and time is available and if not, a suggested date and time will appear. Once the date and time is agreed upon, the Veteran will respond to the prompt and the appointment will be scheduled.

We have scheduled appointments for all of our present first dose supply of the COVID-19 Vaccine and will continue to schedule appointments as we are allocated more vaccines. Veterans with established scheduled appointments for their 1st or 2nd vaccine dose should keep their established appointment and receive the vaccine at their scheduled locations. When you present to the COVID clinic your vital signs will be taken prior to receiving your vaccine and you will be monitored for 15 to 30 minutes after receiving your vaccine. Please take all your morning medications prior to presenting to the COVID-19 Vaccine clinic.

The COVID-19 vaccine locations at the Georgia Veteran Education Career Transition Resource Center (VECTR) in Warner Robins opened Monday, Feb. 8. The Macon CBOC will continue to administer the vaccine to scheduled Veterans.

We are currently scheduling Veteran vaccine appointments daily at the Dublin main campus, Macon CBOC and in Warner Robins at the VECTR Center. The Brunswick CBOC and the Tifton CBOC will have a 1-day COVID vaccine clinic on Monday, February 15th. All appointments are scheduled.

As additional supply is received, Dublin VAMC’s COVID-19 vaccine teams will contact eligible Veterans directly to determine their interest to receive the vaccine and schedule them for future appointments or you can call the following numbers to schedule your appointment:
• 478-277-6762
• 1-800-595-5229
• 1-478-272-1210 ext. 2843

Please continue to check back with us frequently for updates regarding our vaccination efforts.
