COVID-19 Vaccines

COVID-19 Vaccines and Boosters

VA is providing COVID-19 vaccines, as authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Supply varies by facility. Get more information about COVID-19 vaccines at VA.

VA is now offering Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster shots to Veterans, spouses and caregivers who have already received a full series of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at least six months ago. Not all VA facilities are offering Pfizer booster shots. Learn more about COVID-19 booster shots in VA.

You can also receive your Pfizer booster outside of VA. You can locate a vaccine site at https://www.vaccines.gov/search/. Make sure to take your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card when you go!

We continue to encourage all eligible individuals to get vaccinated.


VA Eastern Kansas Health Care System which includes the Colmery-O-Neil VA Medical Center in Topeka and the Dwight D. Eisenhower VA Medical Center in Leavenworth, is providing the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. VA is offering the COVID-19 vaccine first to Veterans who are at the greatest risk for infection and severe illness based on the CDC’s guidelines. The VA’s goal is to offer the vaccine to all Veterans and employees who choose to be vaccinated.

The process to vaccinate every enrolled Veteran will take several months to complete and we ask for your patience. There is no need to preregister, schedule or come to a facility to sign up in order to receive the vaccine. Veterans will receive a call from us to set the scheduling of the vaccine in motion. Click here for a step by step look at how the automated call system works for our VA Eastern Kansas Veteran Population.

See the attached VA Eastern Kansas COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Guide for estimates based on age/risk groups.

Veterans can get up-to-date information on VA’s VA COVID-19 vaccine webpage, which launched on December 11, 2020, and sign up to receive regular updates on the vaccine on the VA’s Stay Informed page
