Please see the information below from the Dayton VA regarding their Covid-19 vaccine plan.
“Our primary care team has identified those most at risk of serious complications from COVID-19. This may include those who are 85 and older, those with other serious health conditions, and those at highest risk of exposure due to their occupations. We are actively contacting these Veterans directly to invite them to schedule their COVID vaccine. These contacts are already underway, and will continue over the coming days.
As we finish reaching out to this first group of roughly 500 Veterans, we will move on to the next most-at-risk group, and continue on down the line. Over the course of time, every Veteran who wants a vaccine will be able to receive one at the Dayton VAMC.
Veterans do not need to preregister, to call for an appointment, or to come to a facility to sign up. We will contact you when it is your turn to receive it.
The vaccine is not mandatory, but is recommended for most individuals.
The Dayton VA received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. This brand of the vaccine was 94 percent effective in clinical trials in preventing COVID-19 disease. The vaccine is administered in two doses, 28 days apart. The side effects appear to be similar to those of other vaccines and are short-lived.
Even after receiving the COVID-19 vaccination, Veterans and Dayton VA staff should continue wearing face coverings, practicing physical distancing and washing hands often. ”
Veterans can get up-to-date information and sign up to receive regular updates on the vaccine on VA’s COVID-19 vaccine webpage at https://www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/.
