Lawmakers call on VA to release a vaccine distribution plan


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON – The Department of Veterans Affairs has not yet publicized a strategy to distribute coronavirus vaccines to its patients and staff once one has been approved, leading some lawmakers to worry that the department has fallen behind states and other federal agencies.

The VA, with 357,000 employees, operates the largest health care system in the United States, oversees nursing homes that care for more than 105,000 veterans and serves a population at disproportionate risk for experiencing severe symptoms of coronavirus. On Tuesday, the department reported about 13,000 active cases of the virus and 4,685 deaths. More than 100,000 VA patients have contracted the virus since the pandemic began.
