VA Finger Lakes Healthcare System has identified Veterans receiving VA health care, according to CDC and VA guidelines, and is contacting them by phone, text message or Secure Message through MyHealtheVet to schedule an appointment to get vaccinated. Phone calls, text messages and secure messages will be ongoing over the next several months as VA Finger Lakes contacts Veterans according to the guidelines and adjusts appointments based on the amount of vaccine on hand. Our goal is to vaccinate all Veterans receiving care from us.
