Vaccines for Veterans

On Feb. 9, the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center began administering COVID-19 vaccines at community outpatient clinics in Myrtle Beach and Beaufort, SC. Enrolled Veterans are being contacted directly for vaccine appointments at these clinics. At this time, Veterans do not need to call to schedule. Veterans ages 70-years-old and older are being scheduled in accordance with CDC and VHA guidelines based on age and existing health conditions. As the supply of COVID-19 vaccines increases, clinics will expand eligibility criteria for vaccination.

The VA Medical Center will be operating the COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the new North Charleston VA Outpatient Clinic, located at 6450 Rivers Ave., on Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. Veterans ages 70-years-old and older can call 843-789-6900 to schedule a vaccine appointment at the North Charleston Clinic.

For Veterans who are not currently enrolled in the VA, please call the eligibility office at 843-789-7008 or visit the eligibility website https://www.charleston.va.gov/patients/eligibility.asp
