New guidance for 2023-2024 vaccines

The CDC recommends that all adults get an updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine.

If it’s been at least 2 months since your last COVID-19 vaccine dose, you should get a single dose of the updated 2023-2024 vaccine now. This is also true if you never got a COVID-19 vaccine before.

If you have certain conditions that weaken your immune system, you may be eligible for additional doses of the updated 2023-2024 vaccine. Ask your provider how many doses they recommend for you. 

Before you go to a VA health facility to get a COVID-19 vaccine, call to ensure the facility has the vaccine you want.


We offer free COVID-19 testing to eligible Veterans enrolled in VA health care.
