For those of you who have not yet received your Covid-19 vaccinations, the VA has made the following announcements:
These groups are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine as supply allows:

Caregivers of Veterans. For COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, we define a caregiver as a family member or friend who provides care to a Veteran. Caregivers may help a Veteran with personal needs like feeding, bathing, or dressing. They may also help a Veteran with tasks like shopping or transportation.
