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:

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.

COVID – 19 Vaccine Update for Albany VA Medical Center Patients

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

We are contacting Veterans in all locations in an organized manner in accordance with the collaborative Risk Stratification criteria developed by the Centers for Disease Control and the Veterans Health Agency which incorporates both age and significant health concerns (comorbidities) and informing Veterans that the Albany/Stratton VA system (which includes all of our Community Based Outpatient Clinics) is scheduling vaccination appointments.

Our goal is to vaccinate all Veterans receiving care from us.
