Upcoming CT VA COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics (updated April 2, 2021)

VETERANS

WEST HAVEN, Conn. – VA Connecticut Healthcare System has expanded COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to include anyone who served in the military (regardless of VA enrollment status), veteran spouses and caregivers. This expansion is part of the recent SAVE LIVES Act

While enrolled veterans remain VA’s top priority, we encourage those newly eligible to attend one of our upcoming clinics. Clinic location will determine which vaccine is administered. Clinics are first come first served and while supplies last. Due to social distancing requirements, we ask that attendees not bring anyone with them to the clinic. Masks required. 

No appointment needed but appointments are available during operating hours by calling 203-932-5711 ext. 5627, 7784 or 7754.
