COVID-19 Vaccines

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

Schedule by MyHealtheVet

All enrolled Veterans are strongly encouraged to use MyHealtheVet to contact their care team. Your care team will reach out to you to schedule your appointment.

Schedule by Phone:

  • To leave a message with your Name, Last 4, and your phone number, Press 1

Schedule by VEText:

The Cheyenne VA Healthcare System now has the capability to schedule Veterans for the COVID-19 Vaccination, through your cell phone, without waiting on the phone. 

VEText (53709) will send messages allowing Veterans to schedule an appointment by text message. This automated process will schedule appointments directly with VA into COVID-19 vaccine clinics.

We are sending these messages out in stages (based on CDC criteria) so not every Veteran will get a text at the same time.  Only Veterans who meet the current CDC criteria and have provided their cell phone numbers will be included.  If you receive a text message from number 53709, you know it is from VEText. Please respond so that we can get you scheduled as soon as possible.

Schedule through the VA's Community Care Network

VA's Community Care Network urgent care locations and retail pharmacies will begin offering COVID-19 vaccinations nationwide for eligible Veterans.

Community Care eligible Veterans can identify in-network urgent care facilities and retail pharmacies where they can receive their COVID-19 vaccination by using VA's Facility Locator at https://www.va.gov/find-locations.

By enabling Community Care Network providers and pharmacies to deliver free vaccine-only services to Veterans, VA is directly contributing to the nation's critical need for additional inoculation locations.

Community Care eligible Veterans are enrolled Veterans that are going to an in-network pharmacy or urgent care location, and all you need to do is present a government-issued ID (doesn’t need to be the VHIC) and tell the pharmacy that they are a Veteran wanting to get their COVID-19 shot through the VA’s Community Care Network.

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