Veterans must be enrolled with the El Paso VA Health Care System and must wear a mask and have their VA issued ID to receive the vaccination. They will get the Moderna vaccine and will be automatically scheduled for their second dose.
This is the second time this week that the VA is offering the vaccine without appointments.
