COVID-19 Vaccines

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized three COVID-19 vaccines. VA is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance to pause in providing the Janssen vaccine at this time. This pause is due to a concern about possible rare side effects. Your safety is our top priority. For more information, go to the CDC website. Read the CDC and FDA statement on the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine. If you have a vaccine appointment scheduled, your VA health facility will work with you to determine what to do next.

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.

President Joe Biden signed the SAVE LIVES Act into law on March 24, 2021 which expands VA’s legal authority to provide COVID-19 vaccines to Veterans, spouses, and caregivers. We still have a limited supply of vaccine and are working to determine how quickly we can begin offering to additional groups identified in the SAVE LIVES Act. This past weekend, we began providing COVID vaccines to all Veterans, their spouses, and caregivers in Albany, Georia. Veterans can sign up with the “Keep Me Informed” tool to get updates here: COVID-19 vaccines: Stay informed and help us prepare.

Veterans who are not currently receiving care at VA and their spouses/caregivers are encouraged to take the first opportunity they have to get a vaccine at the most convenient location whether from their employer, pharmacy, or local public health officials.

Veterans enrolled Dublin VAMC can opt to receive the vaccine at one of our sites of care by scheduling an appointment by calling 800-595-5229 or 478-272-1210 ext. 2843. We are currently running full-time COVID-19 vaccine clinics at the Carl Vinson VA Medical Center, Macon CBOC, and the Georgia VECTR Center in Warner Robins. All COVID-19 vaccine clinics are by appoint

Why should you consider getting the COVID-19 vaccine now?
A vaccine will help protect you, other Veterans, our staff, and your community by lowering the risk of getting an infection. Vaccines will also slow the spread of the virus protecting families, friends, and neighbors.

What else do you need to know?
You will need to receive two doses of the Moderna vaccine, and one does of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine to be better protected. Depending on the vaccine you receive, you may need to be available to come back to the location you received your first dose in 28 days for your second dose. After you receive your vaccine, you will be monitored for 15-30 minutes prior to being scheduling your second appointment

After you receive the vaccine, it will still be important to continue wearing a mask in public, washing your hands, and staying at least 6 feet from others who don’t live with you until the virus is under control. It is our hope that a vaccine will help us all come through this pandemic together.
