The Tennessee Valley Healthcare System is hosting a walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinic Saturday, February 13 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at its Murfreesboro campus.

Veterans interested in receiving their first dose must be enrolled in TVHS health care and be aged 55 or above.

“We received our largest shipment of Moderna COVID-19 doses this week,” Jennifer Vedral-Baron, TVHS health system director, said. “So many Veterans have patiently been waiting for their vaccine. Now is their chance to act and get it.”

Per CDC regulations, Veterans must not have had any other vaccine within the last 14 days. Additionally, Veterans who have contracted COVID-19 must wait 90 days to receive the first dose.

At the Alvin C. York campus, Veterans can follow the green arrows to the vaccination location inside the gymnasium. All parking lots will be open for Veterans to use. 

Before entering the building, eligibility and enrollment will be confirmed and Veterans will be asked for their VA identification card. Masks are also required for building entry, and visitors are not allowed inside. Due to the high demand, there may be a wait.

Enrolled Veterans will need to return 28 days later to receive their second dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. For more information on TVHS vaccine updates, CLICK HERE
