Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System (CAVHCS)
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:
- 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.
CAVHCS COVID-19 Vaccination Information
Following national and local VA policies, face masks are still required in all CAVHCS facilities, regardless of vaccination status. The new masking recommendations released by the CDC for those fully vaccinated do not apply to our facilities. Additionally, as a reminder, visitors under the age of 18 are not allowed in VA facilities at this time.
The new CDC guidance is encouraging news and based on data showing a high level of vaccine effectiveness. In short, the COVID-19 vaccines work! Please help us get out of this pandemic and get vaccinated as soon as you are able.
Appointments are preferred; however, walk-ins are welcome, subject to supply availability. Please call 866-601-1079 during normal business hours to schedule a vaccination.
Thank you for helping us keep you and our employees safe.
