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: www.va.gov/covidvaccine.

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.

West Palm Beach VA Healthcare System COVID-19 Vaccine Notice

At this time, we're offering COVID-19 vaccines first to these 2 groups when the Veteran is eligible based on VA and CDC risk criteria:

These groups are now also eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine as supply allows:

  • All Veterans 
  • All Spouses and surviving spouses of Veterans
  • All Caregivers of Veterans. For COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, we define a caregiver as a family member or friend who provides care to a Veteran. Caregivers may help a Veteran with personal needs like feeding, bathing, or dressing. They may also help a Veteran with tasks like shopping or transportation. 
  • All Recipients of Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) benefits

Note: If you have received any vaccine, such as the Flu or Shingles vaccine, you will need to wait 14 days from the date of that vaccination before receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Additional information regarding COVID-19 Vaccine clinics is located below (check this page periodically for updates):

COVID-19 Third Dose

VHA is following CDC guidance in recommending certain moderately or severely immunocompromised people get a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine if they previously received a primary course of either Pfizer or Moderna. 

Our clinics will be reaching out to our Veterans who meet the criteria outlined by the CDC to order the 3rd dose and schedule an appointment in the COVID Vaccine Clinic. 

If recommended for a third dose, it is important to receive the same vaccine previously administered. If you received Pfizer previously, you should get Pfizer for your third dose. If you received Moderna previously, you should get Moderna for your third dose.  

At this time, people who received the Jansen (Johnson & Johnson) single dose vaccine SHOULD NOT get additional doses of Pfizer or Moderna.

Moderately and severely immunocompromised patients include:

  • Active treatment for solid tumor and hematologic malignancies
  • Receipt of solid-organ transplant and taking immunosuppressive therapy
  • Receipt of CAR-T-cell or hematopoietic stem cell transplant (within 2 years of transplantation or taking immunosuppression therapy)
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g., DiGeorge, Wiskott-Aldrich syndromes)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids (i.e., >20mg prednisone or equivalent per day), alkylating agents, antimetabolites, transplant-related immunosuppressive drugs, cancer chemotherapeutic agents classified as severely immunosuppressive, TNF blockers, and other biologic agents that are immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory
