VA Bedford Healthcare System
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.
If you're eligible to get a vaccine, your VA health care team will contact you. You don't need to reserve a vaccine, or come to a VA facility to request or receive a vaccine until we contact you. Our staff will only provide vaccines to Veterans who are currently eligible for one based on VA and CDC risk criteria.
As of Jan. 15, 2021, VA Bedford Healthcare System has administered more than 3,200 vaccinations to employees and Veterans!
- Community Residential Care (CRC) homes
- All VA Bedford employees
- Outpatients 65 and over and those determined by their care provider to be at high risk for a COVID-19 infection
- VA employees whose duty station is Bedford but whose home base is elsewhere (tenant units)
If you are on the Bedford campus for an appointment, ask your healthcare provider if you are in one of the current categories to receive the vaccine. Due to transportation restrictions of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine, we are only offering vaccinations at the Bedford campus at this time. We're actively working on a distribution plan to offer the vaccine in our community based outreach clinics.
If you are a Veteran who is not enrolled, but interested in getting the vaccine, please visit our Eligibility page to determine your eligibility for VA healthcare.
