The Town of Southborough has been trying to keep residents notified of regional Covid Vaccine Clinic opportunities. Recently, they shared news on the Bedford VA Clinic’s offering to veterans ages 55+. The VA has now expanded that to all ages. However, veterans need to be enrolled in VA healthcare to qualify.
Below is the Town’s Veterans Agent’s announcement with details:
Dear Southborough Veterans,
VA Bedford Healthcare System has administered almost 18,000 vaccinations to employees and Veterans! You can find the most current information about the COVID Vaccination Clinics on their public webpage at https://www.bedford.va.gov/services/covid-19-vaccines.asp.
Effective February 25, 2021, COVID vaccinations be will open and available to ALL Veterans enrolled in VA healthcare, regardless of age. Veterans may call the Vaccination Call Center at 781-687-4000 to make an appointment. This line is open weekdays only from 8-4:30, but the vaccination clinic is open daily, including weekends. Note: As a federal facility, VA does not follow state guidelines.
Also, please note, the clinic phone lines are extremely busy so please be patient and continue to call to get through. I have been assured that they have an abundance of vaccine available and all registered veterans who want a vaccine will be able to get one with a follow-up vaccine three weeks following the initial shot.
Brian Stearns, Director
Southborough Veteran Services
