And the agency is making it easy, too. No appointment is necessary, and wait times are minimal.
All those who served in the U.S. military are eligible and not just limited to veterans enrolled in VA health care.
Spouses include marriage, same-sex and common-law marriages, according to the agency. This also includes a widow or widower of a veteran.
To be vaccinated through VA, a caregiver is defined as any family member or friend who provides care to the veteran. Caregivers may help the veteran with personal needs like feeding, bathing, or dressing, or with tasks like shopping or transportation.
The agency is located at 2002 Holcombe Blvd.
The SAVE LIVES Act has increased the number of people who are eligible to get the vaccine. The Houston VA has administered nearly 65,000 doses of the coronavirus vaccine so far.
