Montana VA Health Care System
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.
Montana VA COVID-19 Veteran vaccination update
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. Read more ... .
