COVID-19 Vaccines for Community

Community members who meet State of Florida Guidelines, and who are:
- A Veteran NOT currently enrolled (not currently a patient receiving care in the VA), or
- A family member of ANY Veteran - patient of VA or not

WHERE & WHEN: Vaccines will be administered at a drive-through clinic during announced timeframes.

A1. Yes, please bring or show your proof of registration you received from the Tampa VA invitation for vaccination.
Q2. What else do I need to know?
