Veterans in the VA Health Care System
VA facilities will provide vaccines to Veterans receiving VA health care who are most at risk. The VA will determine when they can provide vaccines to Veterans in their system. If you’re not currently receiving health care through VA, you can apply now.
Information about the VA Vaccine Program at: va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/
It took us about a month to get 7% of the US population inoculated with their first jab. The total USA population of Health Care Workers and 65+ people is about 27% of our total population so it follows that it will likely take another 3 months or so to get all of us vaccinated.
And of course much longer to protect the entire country and the world. Of course our vaccine production and administration will no doubt improve and become substantially faster over time.
We are all hoping that the virus does not mutate and become more deadly and/or resistant to the vaccine.
In the meantime keep doing what we did in 1918 and what we should be doing now.

Wear good Masks
