Effective March 1, VA Connecticut will offer COVID-19 vaccine to enrolled patients regardless of age.

"Due to a steady supply and strong interest from our veterans, we feel confident in dropping the age restrictions to offer vaccine to any enrolled veteran interested in receiving it," said VA Connecticut director Al Montoya. 

Depending on location, VA Connecticut patients will receive either the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. As of Feb. 28, the healthcare system has vaccinated approximately 17,000 enrolled patients through a series of scheduled appointments and walk-in clinics. 

Upcoming Walk-in Clinics:

March 1-March 5 from 12-4pm

West Haven Annex, 200 Edison Road/Pez Blvd in Orange

Newington Campus, 555 Willard Avenue

VA Connecticut will host a clinic for scheduled appointments on March 3 from 8am-3pm at the East Putnam Fire District, 263 Providence Pike in Putnam. Enrolled patients will be contacted by VA to attend this clinic. Veterans not contacted by VA who wish to schedule an appointment at the Putnam clinic can call 203-932-5711 ext. 5627.

Key Information for Attendees:

Veterans (any age) must be enrolled for care with VA to receive the vaccine.

We are administering the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. Location will determine which vaccine is given.

Availability is first come, first served.

Mask and physical distancing required. To maintain physical distancing, if possible, we ask that veterans not bring anyone to the clinic.
