The Walla Walla VA is Now Vaccinating ALL Eligible Veterans
Roll out and roll up your sleeves Veterans, because it's time for all eligible veterans in the greater Columbia Basin area to get their COVID-19 shot(s). The Walla Walla VA is now moving into its next phase of offering COVID-19 vaccinations to ALL eligible Veterans, in all age groups, and at all clinic locations - Walla Walla, Richland, Yakima, WA; Lewiston, ID and La Grande, OR.
This target is fast moving and things are changing weekly, almost daily, and the Walla Walla VA is proud to say their staff is stepping up to help get our Veterans vaccinated as quickly as possible.
While vaccine clinics will continue to be offered during the week, weekend clinics are now being scheduled as well.
Currently, there are three scheduled for this Saturday, March 20th, in the Richland, Lewiston and La Grande areas and will have plenty of vaccine supply to inoculate Veterans who call to schedule an appointment.
Veterans are invited to call to schedule an appointment for either a week day or a weekend day at a location that is convenient to them. And of course they can travel to any of the sites of care to get vaccinated.
Appointments are necessary in order to maintain physical distancing and to allow staff to manage the vaccine supply for all scheduled clinics.
Please note that you will need to dial ‘2’ and ‘2’ when prompted after the main number is dialed (509.525.5200). This will help alleviate any confusion for the Veteran about what to do once they get the main automated message.
Additional information can be found on the Walla Walla VA's social media pages and here.
