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: 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.

Wilmington VA Medical Center COVID-19 Vaccination Updates

If you are an enrolled Veteran who received a vacinnation outside of the VA, please report it to your primary care team. 

We are vaccinating:

  • ALL Veterans. Veteran does not need to be enrolled in VA health care.
  • Veteran spouses and surviving spouses.
  • Caregivers of Veterans. (For COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, we define a caregiver as a family member or friend who provides care to a Veteran.)

Call 302-633-5200 for more information (Monday - Friday, from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.) for more information or to schedule an appointment. We will do our best to schedule appointments with Veterans who meet the above criteria when they call in, but due to high-call volume, we ask that Veterans call back between the scheduled times if they are unable to get through on initial attempts.

Veterans who have signed up for VA Health Chat, can use the application to schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments.
