How we are contacting Veterans;

VA Portland staff are calling and/or emailing specific groups of enrolled and eligible Veterans assigned to the VA Portland facilities if eligible to receive the vaccine based on the above criteria. It may be an automated phone call. Be sure to answer the phone and choose "option 1" to schedule a vaccination appointment. You can choose option 2 to decline. If you choose "1," you will be placed in a queue to speak to a staff member. Multiple attempts are being made via phone and/or email.

For ONLY those Veterans who were contacted and scheduled a COVID vaccination, they can call 503-273-5100 to cancel or reschedule their appointments, if needed.

We are asking Veterans to NOT CALL VA Portland to inquire about vaccinations. Currently, operators and staff will not be able to schedule Veterans who call in for a COVID vaccination.  We encourage people to check for COVID vaccination information updates here and on Facebook.

COVID vaccinations are by appointment ONLY.
