VA Central Ohio Healthcare System
VA is providing COVID-19 vaccines, as authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Supply varies by facility. Get more information about COVID-19 vaccines at VA.
VA is now offering Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster shots to Veterans, spouses and caregivers who have already received a full series of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at least six months ago. Not all VA facilities are offering Pfizer booster shots. Learn more about COVID-19 booster shots in VA.
You can also receive your Pfizer booster outside of VA. You can locate a vaccine site at https://www.vaccines.gov/search/. Make sure to take your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card when you go!
We continue to encourage all eligible individuals to get vaccinated.
The VA Central Ohio Healthcare System Covid-19 Vaccine Clinic
The Columbus VA is working hard to ensure Veterans are vaccinated against Covid-19.
If Veterans have not received the Covid-19 vaccine, they can walk-in to the Chalmers P. Wylie VA Ambulatory Care Clinic, Monday thru Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to receive it. We administer the one-dose Johnson & Johnson or two-dose Moderna vaccines.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is also available at our Community Based Outpatient Clinics in Grove City, Marion, Newark and Zanesville by appointment only, Monday thru Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Schedule appointments by calling one of our CBOCs:
- Grove City: 614-257-5804
- Marion: 614-257-5200
- Newark: 614-257-5200, ext. 2970
- Zanesville: 740-453-7725
If Veterans received the vaccine through another healthcare provider or at a location other than the Columbus VA, they can call their primary care nurse to let them know. This will help us keep their medical records current.
When Veterans call in, they should have their Covid-19 vaccine card nearby and provide the following information:
- Last 4 of SSN
- Lot# of vaccine (if received the Pfizer or Moderna Vaccines, provide Lot# from both doses)
- Location received vaccine
- Date for each dose of vaccine
The Columbus VA now is vaccinating all Veterans, Veteran spouses, and Veteran caregivers. This includes ALL prior service personnel - Active Duty, Reserve, or National Guard – regardless of time in service, duty status or character of discharge.
If Veterans are not enrolled for healthcare with the VA, please have them stop by the Enrollment Office on the 1st Floor of the Chalmers P. Wylie VA Ambulatory Care Center from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to register before getting their shot. For more information on registration call the Columbus VA Enrollment Office at 614-257-5608.
