The TVHS announced Jan. 19 it has begun offering the Moderna vaccine to high-risk veterans and veterans age 65 and older.
Other eligible groups include homeless veterans, nursing home patients, dialysis and transplant patients and chemotherapy patients.
Veterans enrolled with the TVHS can sign up to indicate interest in receiving the vaccine, after which they will be informed of when they are eligible to receive it, according to the TVHS. Veterans do not need to contact the VA or show up in person to request a vaccine.
Those who are interested in receiving alerts from the TVHS can sign up here.
While much of the state is still in the first phases of its vaccine rollout—which include inoculating those age 75 and older and those who work in health care and as first responders—the state has also taken steps to prioritize other at-risk populations, such as those with intellectual and developmental disabilities who cannot live independently.
To find out if you or a family member are eligible for current phases of the vaccine, take the questionnaire in the state's vaccine eligibility tool here.
