Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized three 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.
Currently, VA is offering COVID-19 vaccine to Veterans already receiving care from the VA, based on CDC and VA risk criteria. If you're eligible to get a vaccine, your VA health care team will contact you.
Veterans who are not enrolled or do not currently receive care at VA can visit VA's Eligibility web page to learn more: Eligibility For VA Health Care | Veterans Affairs
Truman VA is now administering COVID-19 vaccinations to all qualified Veterans.
Q: Is there currently an age requirement to be vaccinated?
A: No. Currently, enrolled eligible Veterans of any age may be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Q: Where can I get vaccinated?
A: Truman VA holds a dedicated COVID-19 vaccine clinic for enrolled eligible Veterans each week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday at our medical center, which is located at 800 Hospital Drive. Veterans are vaccinated by appointment.
Q: How early should I arrive for my vaccination appointment?
A: Please do not arrive early for your appointment. We have limited space in the vaccine clinic waiting areas.
Q: Can I bring a spouse/friend with me to my vaccination appointment?
A: We respectfully request that unless you have a special need, that you arrive alone due to limited space in the clinic waiting areas.
Q: Is Truman VA vaccinating enrolled eligible Veterans at the Community-Based Outpatient Clinics?
A: Yes. Truman VA is holding limited off-site vaccine clinics at some of our Community-Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs). All but one so far have been by appointment only and on pre-scheduled dates. When calling to make your appointment, you may inquire about receiving your vaccination at a CBOC. However, based on the most up-to-date CBOC vaccination schedule, it may not be possible.
Q: Can family members or the general public be vaccinated at Truman VA?
A: No. At this time, we are only authorized to vaccinate enrolled eligible Veterans, VA employees, VA volunteers, VA contractors, and paid caregivers enrolled in VA’s Caregiver Support Program.
Q: How many doses of the vaccine are you administering?
A: At this time, Truman VA is administering more than 2,000 doses each week.
