VA Black Hills Health Care System reschedules mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinics

Due to winter weather conditions, the mobile vaccine clinics have been rescheduled for Fri., Mar. 19 in Sundance and Newcastle. Veterans with appointments simply need to come at their previously schedule appointment time, now on Friday. Additional appointments are available.

The clinic will be in Sundance from 8-11 a.m. at the CCSD Central Office parking lot and in Newcastle from 12:30-3:30 p.m. at the Gateway Travel Center parking lot.

Veterans choosing to be vaccinated will receive the Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) one dose vaccine. In clinical trials, the Janssen vaccine showed an efficacy of 66% against moderate to severe/critical COVID-19 disease occurring at least 28 days after vaccination – and demonstrated greater than 85% efficacy in preventing severe/critical COVID-19 disease occurring at least 28 days after vaccination.

Veterans who are enrolled and receiving health care in VA are eligible to get the vaccine. VA Black Hills is offering the vaccine to all risk categories.

Veterans can schedule an appointment for either location by calling 1-800-743-1070 option # 2 between the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
