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

Thank you!

Veteran COVID vaccination is now open to all enrolled Veterans 65 years of age and over! Enrolled Veterans who are essential workers are also eligible for vaccination. Eligible Veterans may call 562-826-5300 to schedule their vaccination appointment. Visit the CDC website for a complete list of essential workers who qualify as defined under Phases 1a, 1b, and 1c. Essential workers are asked to present a valid work or small business owned ID when checking in for their appointment. 

For caregivers enrolled in the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC) program, if the Veteran they care for is eligible for vaccination, the caregiver is also eligible and will be contacted.

Veterans not in the previously mentioned categories may still express their interest if they have not already done so here: https://www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/stay-informed.

Outpatient COVID vaccinations are currently occurring in the Bldg. 165, Learning Center Auditorium, best known as the "Egg."

Veterans can hear updates on VA Long Beach’s vaccine status by calling the COVID Vaccine hotline at 562-826-8000 and press 5.
