SHREVEPORT, LA — The Overton Brooks VA Medical Center (OBVAMC) offers two vaccination opportunities on March 27 and 28. The walk-in clinics are for all enrolled veterans and authorized caregivers.
The walk-in clinics are from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday at Shreveport’s main facility, 510 East Stoner Avenue.
The Shreveport VA has administered over 17,000 Moderna COVID-19 vaccine first and second doses since vaccines were first received in late December.
All enrolled ArkLATex veterans are eligible for the vaccine, including authorized caregivers.
The Department of Veterans Affairs encourages eligible Veterans, spouses, caregivers, and employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19 when a vaccine is available. The Shreveport VA respects and understands that some people may prefer a particular vaccine due to various reasons. However, due to the limited supply of vaccines at this time and storage requirements, facilities may be limited to offering a specific brand. If employees or Veterans have specific concerns or questions, they should reach out to their care providers.
Veterans can get the latest information and sign up to receive updates on VA’s COVID-19 vaccine webpage.
