Tennessee Valley Healthcare System is offering COVID-19 vaccines to all Veterans, caregivers, spouses, and select beneficiaries identified in the SAVE LIVES Act.

COVID-19 vaccinations depend on available supply, and the act requires TVHS to prioritize Veterans enrolled in VA care. 

“Since the start of the pandemic, we have focused on vaccinating as many Veterans as possible. Now, we are excited to increase our efforts thanks to the SAVE LIVES Act,” said TVHS Health System Director Jennifer Vedral-Baron.

TVHS is hosting walk-in vaccine clinics April 7 - 9 at its Murfreesboro and Nashville campuses from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. CST. On April 10, the Nashville campus will host a walk-in clinic from 7:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. CST.
