For two-time Iraq War Army Veteran Dana Hare, the COVID-19 vaccine offered a literal dose of hope.

“It’s been difficult, Hare, Salt Lake City VA’s first vaccinated patient said. “It’s been very isolating. We need interaction with our families — that’s one of the things that keeps us healthy.”

With roughly 13,000 high-risk Veterans within an hour’s drive of Salt Lake City, the need to vaccinate is crucial. Fortunately, VA has expanded vaccine offerings to Veterans 65 and older.

The move is good news for Veterans seeking a return to normalcy.

Hope for Return to In-Person Connection

“I want to start meeting with people I know and love, I want to get these masks off and start being normal again,” Hare said. “One of the things that helps us heal is that face-to-face connection with our brothers and sisters in arms, there’s nothing that can replace it.”

Salt Lake City VA will serve as the vaccination hub for Veterans in Salt Lake City, Ogden, Orem, South Jordan, and Logan. The vaccines are free and require two doses, given 28 days apart.

The vaccine clinic is in the basement of building 14, room BD01 (previous library location). Veterans must access the clinic from the main lobby.

Veterans must be enrolled at VA to receive the vaccine. For more information, please call VA at 801-582-1565, ext. 5657 and follow the prompts.
