Daytona Beach, FL - Eligible veterans who get their care through a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) clinic also have a chance to receive a free COVID-19 vaccine.
The Daytona Beach VA Multispecialty Community Based Outpatient Clinic—also known as the William V. Chappell, Jr. Veterans' Outpatient Clinic—is distributing the vaccines to local veterans based on CDC and Veterans Health Administration guidelines.
Veterans must also be enrolled and eligible for VA health care benefits and be a patient at the Daytona Beach clinic. At the moment, only veterans aged 65 years old may receive the vaccine. Veterans who are 65 years of age and are considered a "frontline" worker or part of the high risk category also qualify for a vaccine.
