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.

NAVAHCS has been administering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to Veterans at the main hospital in Prescott and the Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) throughout northern Arizona. The vaccine is being scheduled for Veterans by priority and vaccination currently is being offered through appointment only. The vaccinations are scheduled using the guidelines outlined by the CDC and Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). NAVAHCS will continue to vaccinate Veterans by priority in a phased approach based on the number of doses received. 

Phase 1:  Veterans age 75+, on hemodialysis or chemotherapy, and transplant

Phase2:  Veterans age 65+

Phase 3:  Veterans ages 18 – 64

Veterans can click here to sign up for an easy way to stay informed about the COVID vaccine. When you sign up, if you are interested in receiving the COVID vaccine, you can provide your information to have your name added to the list. Veterans are NOT required to sign up to get a vaccination.

Information and links for Veterans to access scheduling information will be made available on the NAVAHCS web site, Facebook page, Gov Delivery email and MyHealtheVet Patient Portal.

It is important to remember that even after you receive the vaccine, you still need to wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands.

NAVAHCS is looking forward to continuing to provide you outstanding health care in the new year. We appreciate your patience; stay safe and Thank You for Choosing VA.
