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.

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.

Wilmington VA Medical Center COVID-19 Vaccination Updates

We understand many of our Veteran patients are interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, and we appreciate the patience and understanding while we vaccinate our highest risk Veterans.

During this initial phase of limited supply, our facilities are offering vaccinations by appointment only to the following categories of Veterans receiving care at VA:

  • Veterans aged 75 and older

  • Veterans with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk

  • Community Living Center Residents

We are direclty contacting Veterans who meet this criteria directly to schedule an appointment.

As additional vaccine becomes available for more groups of Veterans, VA care teams will reach out to eligible Veterans to schedule vaccinations.

There is no need to preregister or come to a facility to sign up, although Veterans are encouraged to let their Primary Care Provider know so that they can make a note in the patient’s chart and follow up when vaccine is available to them.

To get the latest updates and sign up to stay informed about COVID-19 vaccines, visit VA's vaccine information page.
