Battle Creek VA Medical Center
VA is providing the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccines, as authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Supply varies by facility. Get more information about COVID-19 vaccines at VA.
We are working to vaccinate as many eligible individuals as quickly as possible.
Easier access to vaccines and more people eligible
VA is adding walk-in COVID-19 vaccinations at all VA facilities and outpatient clinics that offer COVID-19 vaccines. Please check hours for vaccination clinics.
Congress has passed a law which allows us to offer COVID-19 vaccines to the following groups who are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine:
- Spouse of a Veteran
- Caregivers of a Veteran
- Recipients of Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) benefits
If you don't receive care at VA, we encourage you to pre-register online at least one hour before you go, to save time when you arrive. While at VA you will need to wear a face mask, and physical distancing measures will be in place. For more about vaccinations at VA, visit: www.va.gov/covidvaccine.
Note: Your employer, pharmacy, or local public health officials may offer you a COVID-19 vaccine. We encourage you to take the first opportunity you have to get a vaccine at the most convenient location for you.The Battle Creek VA Medical Center and Community Based Outpatient Clinics are now providing the COVID-19 vaccine to ALL Veterans regardless of age or pre-existing conditions. We also provide vaccination to anyone who has served in the military, their spouses, and cargivers who qualify under the SAVES LIVES Act (SLA).
In August 2021, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized a third dose of COVID-19 vaccine for people with moderate to severe immunocompromise who received the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines. This includes those with organ transplants and those diagnosed with conditions that are considered to have a similar level of immunocompromise.
Why should I receive an additional dose if I am immunocompromised?
Studies indicate some immunocompromised people don’t always build sufficient level of immunity after vaccination and may benefit from an additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine to ensure adequate protection against the virus.
Please note: There is not enough data on whether or not those immunocompromised patients who received the J&J/Janssen vaccine should get an additional shot so this is not recommended yet. More information is expected in the coming weeks.
Appointments can be scheduled through your PACT clerk or (269)966-5600 Press 8 and follow prompts to schedule.
We are now providing the COVID-19 Vaccine in the Primary Care Clinics at all locations.
