Here is additional information from the VA Maryland Health Care System shared on April 9th:
See Update for Unenrolled Veterans, Veteran Spouses and Caregiver, and CHAMPVA recipients!
The VA Maryland Health Care System, in collaboration with the Maryland National Guard, is holding two COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics this weekend by appointment only on Saturday, April 10, and Sunday, April 11, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Baltimore VA Medical Center for all enrolled Veterans, regardless of their age.
To schedule an appointment for this weekend’s vaccine clinic, enrolled Veterans can call our COVID Vaccine Appointment Line at 410-605-7740 Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
UPDATE! Unenrolled Veterans, Veteran spouses and caregivers, and CHAMPVA recipients can also get their COVID-19 vaccination at the Baltimore VA Medical Center on Saturday, April 10, and Sunday, April 11, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on a walk-in basis. To expedite the registration process, you can register online prior to this weekend’s COVID-19 vaccine event by visiting Sign up to get a vaccine | Veterans Affairs.
On April 10, we will be administering the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, which requires a second dose 21 days later. On April 11, we will be administering the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, which is a single dose vaccination.
Please bring a valid government issued photo ID so you can register to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Additionally, please wear a short sleeve shirt to make it easier to administer your vaccination.
The SAVE LIVES Act authorizes VA to provide COVID-19 vaccine to all Veterans, even if you’ve never used VA before, along with spouses and caregivers.
There is free parking available in the parking garage at the Baltimore VA Medical Center, which is located at 10 North Greene Street in Baltimore, MD 21201. For directions, please visit https://www.maryland.va.gov/locations/Baltimore_VA_Medical_Center.asp
On a personal note: I made an appointment for Sunday morning to receive the J&J shot. I am super excited for this opportunity. I hope other veterans looking to get the COVID-19 vaccine shot look into this walk-in opportunity for the shot.
