Vermont Business Magazine The White River Junction Veterans Affairs (VA) Healthcare System and the Vermont National Guard continue their partnership for the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out. On April 16th the White River Junction VA will be administering first doses of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at the Westminster Armory. This clinic will be a scheduled appointments only clinic.
“The Vermont National Guard has always been a strong, uniting force in the Green Mountain State.” Dr. Becky Rhoads, Acting Director for White River Junction VA Healthcare System said. “Their eagerness to offer their armories as large vaccination sites is just one example of how they put our communities’ safety first.”
The Westminster Armory is centrally located between the Brattleboro, Vermont and the Keene, New Hampshire VA outpatient clinics which is why the facility is a perfect choice for the next collaborative effort for the Vermont National Guard and White River Junction VA.
"The VA and the Vermont National Guard have a very strong working relationship with many of the same common goals.” Mr. Ken Gragg, Deputy Adjutant General of the Vermont National Guard said. “With the National Guard having facilities all over the state and the VA's mission to vaccinate veterans across the state, it makes total sense that we partner to provide VA with locations to hold their vaccination clinics."
Complete details for this clinic are outlined below. Everyone must schedule an appointment by calling 802-296-5151.
