COVID-19 Vaccines

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized two COVID-19 vaccines. VA will have a limited amount of vaccines to start. We've worked with the CDC and other federal partners to develop a phased plan. Our goal is to do the most good for the most people during this time.

Currently, VA is offering COVID-19 vaccine to Veterans already receiving care from the VA, based on CDC and VA risk criteria. If you're eligible to get a vaccine, your VA health care team will contact you.

Veterans who are not enrolled or do not currently receive care at VA can visit VA's Eligibility web page to learn more: Eligibility For VA Health Care | Veterans Affairs

Update as of February 4, 2021: Butler Extends COVID Vaccine to 65 and older
 

The Butler VA Health Care System has worked diligently to offer and administer the COVID-19 vaccine as quickly as possible to VA employees and Veterans who receive care at VA and who meet current CDC guidelines. We are excited to announce that we are progressing through the prioritization and are now offering vaccines to enrolled Veterans 65 and older.  Please contact the call center at 878-271-6753 for more information about the Moderna COVID vaccine and to schedule an appointment. 


Veterans are encouraged to register to “Keep Me Informed” at https://www.va.gov/covid-19-vaccine to stay current on COVID vaccine information.

We continue to schedule appointments for vaccine administration. Butler VA receives shipments weekly, however the quantity varies based on supply.  Each week staff are committed to exhaust all supply on hand.  Effective February 1, VISN and facility COVID-19 vaccination data can be viewed at VA’s Access to Care site. 

During this phase of limited vaccine supply, we expect interest to far exceed vaccine availability. That is why we continue to follow CDC guidelines for vaccine administration to ensure those at greatest risk for severe illness are offered the vaccine as it becomes available.  To learn more about CDC vaccination guidelines, please visit: When Vaccine is Limited, Who Should Get Vaccinated First? | CDC
