VA Portland Staff are Calling Veterans to Schedule COVID Vaccinations

If you are a Veteran 75 years of age and older in the Portland or Vancouver area, please listen for a phone call from VA Portland so we can schedule you for a COVID vaccination.

We are expanding the pool of Veterans who can receive COVID-19 vaccinations right now.

The list includes enrolled Veterans 75 years of age and older, especially those with other conditions that put them at higher risk. We are currently contacting Veterans directly based off age and clinical conditions.

We are asking Veterans to NOT CALL VA Portland to inquire about vaccinations. Currently, operators and staff will not be able to schedule Veterans who call in for a COVID vaccination.  We encourage people to check for COVID vaccination information updates at www.portland.va.gov, follow us on Facebook, or call the VA Portland COVID-Vaccination Information Line at (503) 220-3434. Anyone can sign up for email updates on our main web page under “CONNECT WITH VA PORTLAND HEALTH CARE SYSTEM.”

We have already vaccinated many Veterans in our long-term care facility as well as dialysis and chemotherapy patients. VA Portland will soon be expanding vaccinations to other VA Portland clinic locations and ramping up the volume of vaccinations. Watch for updates.

To be informed about the vaccine, we encourage Veteran to read this Pfizer vaccine fact sheet…
