WHITE CITY, Ore. — The Veterans Affairs center in White City has opened up coronavirus vaccination appointments to veterans of all ages, the agency announced this week.
All area veterans, from Grants Pass to Klamath Falls, can call the Southern Oregon Rehabilitation Center & Clinics at 541-826-2111 extension 4440 to make an appointment between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. No walk-ins will be accepted.
"The Department of Veterans Affairs encourages eligible Veterans and employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19 when a vaccine is available to them," the agency said. "VA respects and understands that some people may prefer a particular vaccine due to a variety of reasons. However, due to the limited supply of vaccines at this time, facilities may not be able to offer more than one vaccine at this time. If employees or Veterans have specific concerns or questions, they should reach out to their care providers."
All employees, patients, or visitors are required to wear a face mask on the VA SORCC campus — covering the mouth and nose, fitting snugly, and allowing for breathing without restriction.
"We’re doing everything to protect our Veterans and employees as we move through this Pandemic," the VA continued.
