U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Our veterans made many sacrifices so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have today. It seems fitting that many of these brave individuals will be among the first groups of people to receive the COVID-19 Coronavirus vaccine if they wish to receive it.

This week, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs announced that they will provide vaccinations to front line VA healthcare workers and veterans residing in long-term care units, including in our very own Memphis VA Health Care System. Veterans seeking additional information should visit the VA Coronavirus Vaccine FAQs webpage, contact their care team, or visit their facility website.
