The St. Cloud VA Health Care System is expanding its COVID-19 vaccination program to anyone who served in the military, their caregivers and spouses, and Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) beneficiaries.
The recently passed SAVE LIVES Act expands VA's authority to provide COVID-19 vaccinations.
The expanded authority depends on readily available COVID-19 vaccine supply and requires the continued prioritization of veterans enrolled in VA care.
Those eligible under the SAVE LIVES Act to receive a vaccine can go to https://www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/ to register and stay informed on VA’s vaccine program. The St. Cloud VA will contact participants when additional vaccine is available.
To maintain continued health and safety during the pandemic, veterans are asked to not visit a VA facility for a COVID-19 vaccine without an appointment.
These individuals are encouraged to take the first opportunity to get a vaccine at the most convenient location, whether at VA or through an employer, health care provider’s office or through local public health programs.
