COVID-19 Vaccines

VA is providing the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccines, as authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Supply varies by facility. Get more information about COVID-19 vaccines at VA.

We are working to vaccinate as many eligible individuals as quickly as possible.

Easier access to vaccines and more people eligible

VA is adding walk-in COVID-19 vaccinations at all VA facilities and outpatient clinics that offer COVID-19 vaccines. Please check hours for vaccination clinics.

Congress has passed a law which allows us to offer COVID-19 vaccines to the following groups who are eligible for a COVID-19 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

If you don't receive care at VA, we encourage you to pre-register online at least one hour before you go, to save time when you arrive. While at VA you will need to wear a face mask, and physical distancing measures will be in place. For more about vaccinations at VA, visit:

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.

Eligible Veterans may also call 1-877-877-9267 to schedule an appointment at the following locations:
  • Manhattan VA Medical Center
  • Brooklyn VA Medical Center

This morning, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) called for a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine after reports of six U.S. cases of a rare and severe type of blood

Out of an abundance of caution, VA will pause the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine until additional information is provided by the FDA and CDC on the safety of this COVID-19
