Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital
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:
- 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.
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.

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.

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.
