**UPDATES**

The SAVES LIVES Act now allows all Veterans (including those not enrolled and regardless of their character of discharge), Veteran spouses, surviving Veteran spouses, and caregivers to get their COVID vaccine at VA facilities.

This update applies to both spouses and surviving spouses of Veterans.

The VA defines a caregiver as a family member or friend who provides care to a Veteran.

Caregivers may help a Veteran with personal needs like feeding, bathing, or dressing.

They may also help a Veteran with tasks like shopping or transportation. Eligibility is only available to caregivers who are 18 years or older.

Recipients of the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) benefits are also eligible for the vaccine.

Sign up to let us know you are interested in getting scheduled with us at:
