Phoenix VA Opens COVID-19 Vaccines for Veterans of All Ages

Key contributor speaks out as Maricopa County publishes plans for single-dose vaccine distribution

Maricopa County officials say they plan to vaccinate a number of key categories of workers with a single-dose vaccine from Johnson and Johnson.

The Phoenix, VA healthcare system has expanded its eligibility and opened coronavirus vaccine appointments for enrolled veterans of all ages.

An appointment is required, and vaccine distributions are taking place at several VA locations across the valley, including:

  • Main Campus (650 E Indian School Road, Phoenix): 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday; Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • Northwest Clinic (13985 W. Grand Ave., Ste. 105, Surprise): 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday
  • Südostklinik (3285 S. Val Vista Dr., Gilbert): Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Southwest Clinic (9250 W. Thomas Rd., Phoenix): Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the 13th / 14th March; 20/21; 27/28; and April 3rd

The VA also said that veterans must get their second dose in the same place where they received their first dose.

“Veterans can get vaccines in the community once they’re covered,” officials wrote on the VA website. “It is important, however, that veterans get their second dose where they get the first dose. For example, if a veteran gets the first dose in the VA, he or she must get the second dose in the VA.”

Veterans can call 602-604-3915 to make an appointment.
