COVID-19 Vaccines

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized three COVID-19 vaccines. 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.

As a result of President Biden signing H.R. 1276 “SAVE LIVES Act” into law, VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System will soon be offering COVID-19 vaccines to anyone who served in the U.S. military, spouses of Veterans and caregivers of Veterans.

Those eligible under the new legislation include:

  • Veterans
  • Spouses of a Veteran
  • Caregivers of a Veteran
  • Recipients of Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) benefits

Eligible Veterans

  • Anyone who served in the U.S. military is eligible to be vaccinated through VA.

 Eligible Spouse

  • For COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, we define a spouse to include marriage, same-sex and common-law marriages. This includes a widow or widower of a Veteran. If you characterize your relationship as spousal, you can receive the vaccine.

Eligible Caregivers

  • For COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, we define a caregiver as a family member or friend who provides care to the Veteran. Caregivers may help the Veteran with personal needs like feeding, bathing, or dressing. They may also help the Veteran with tasks like shopping or transportation. 

In order to help us identify newly-eligible Veterans, spouses and caregivers, please go to www.va.gov/covid-19-vaccine to register and indicate your interest in receiving a vaccine from VAGLAHS. You will also receive updates on VHA COVID-19 efforts by signing up.
