VA to host walk-in COVID-19 vaccination Clinic for veterans in Ft. Pierce

Posted

WEST PALM BEACH — The West Palm Beach VA Medical Center is proud to partner with the Havert L. Fenn Center to host a Walk-in  COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic on March 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Havert L. Fenn Center, 2000 Virginia Ave., Fort Pierce. The clinic will offer the single dose  COVID-19 Vaccine to veterans currently receiving care at VA, as supply allows.

If a veteran has received vaccinations, such as the flu or shingles vaccine, a waiting period of 14 days is required from the date of vaccination before receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. For more information, please visit the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center COVID-19 Vaccine Page.

Special note regarding SAVE LIVES Act
President Biden signed into law the SAVE LIVES Act on March 24, 2021 which expands VA’s authority to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to all veterans and spouses/caregivers. VA still has a limited supply of vaccine and we are working to determine how quickly we can begin offering to additional groups identified in the SAVE LIVES Act.

Veterans can sign up with the “Keep Me Informed” tool to get updates here: www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/stay-informed or visit the West Palm Beach VA COVID-19 Vaccine website: https://www.westpalmbeach.va.gov/services/covid-19-vaccines.asp

Veterans who are not currently receiving care at VA and spouses/caregivers of veterans are encouraged to take the first opportunity they have to get a vaccine at the most convenient location whether from their employer, pharmacy, or local public health officials.
