Important Covid-19 Vaccine Information

RO Appointment Scheduling Notice

As of November 23, 2020, the US Food and Drug Administration has not approved a COVID-19 Vaccine for use. While VA Manila has already begun planning and taking steps to be ready to receive and administer the COVID-19 vaccine once it is available, that is still likely several months away. VA Manila will continue to provide regular updates to Veterans via our monthly newsletter over the coming weeks as more information is available. Until a vaccine is available, VA Manila continues to encourage all Veterans to follow the recommendations to protect themselves and their families from the COVID-19 pandemic – wash your hands frequently, maintain physical distance from other people whenever possible, and wear a face mask. Together, we can help to stop the spread of COVID-19.
