MTVAHCS COVID-19 Vaccines
If you’re a Veteran, Veteran’s spouse or caregiver, or a CHAMPVA recipient, you’re now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine from Montana VA Health Care System (MTVAHCS). Under the SAVE Lives Act (also known as H.R. 1276), which was signed into law on March 23, the VA’s legal authority to provide COVID-19 vaccines expanded to include all Veterans, regardless of their VA health care enrollment status, as well as Veteran spouses, caregivers, and some beneficiaries.
Previously, MTVAHCS was calling or texting Veterans as they became eligible to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. Enrolled Veterans should call (877) 468-8387 and select Option 2, and then Option 2 to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. Non-enrolled Veterans, their spouses and/or caregivers, and CHAMPVA recipients will need to sign up online here to register to receive a vaccine. Once registered, MTVAHCS will then contact each individual to schedule a vaccine appointment. Learn more.
