COVID-19 Vaccine Update:

  • Veterans enrolled in VA Health Care are now receiving vaccinations based on CDC guidelines, which can be found at
  • There is no need to call for an appointment or come to a facility to sign up – we will contact you directly when we are scheduling Veterans in your risk category
  • We have a dedicated team that is reviewing patient records and actively contacting patients at highest risk of severe illness from COVID-19 to schedule their vaccination appointments
  • As more vaccine becomes available, VA care teams will reach out to other enrolled Veterans to schedule vaccinations
  • The goal is to offer free COVID-19 vaccination to all enrolled Veterans and staff who want it as soon as sufficient supply is available 

In accordance with Rhode Island Department of Health guidelines and as a precaution to help keep our Veterans, staff and community safe, visiting inpatients is temporarily suspended at the Providence VA Medical Center. Exceptions may be granted on a case-by-case basis under rare and extenuating circumstances -- ask the Veteran’s care unit for more information.

The Providence VA Medical Center provides on-site pre-procedure and inpatient COVID-19 testing. We refer enrolled Veterans to providers in the community for diagnostic testing when they meet CDC testing criteria (
