Situation Update

As of Wednesday, February 17, 2021 8:22 AM CST

The Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center is now asking enrolled veterans who want the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to call and schedule an appointment. Eligible veterans can call 906-774-3300 and dial extension 33115 between the hours of 8:00p.m. and 4:30p.m. CT, Monday through Friday, to speak to a scheduler. There are upcoming clinics at VA facilities in Iron Mountain, and other VA clinics throughout the U.P.

 The Iron Mountain VA began receiving vaccines in mid-December and has administered more than 6,000 vaccines to Veterans and staff. The facility has been contacting veterans using the latest CDC guidelines for prioritization and is now opening clinics for those veterans who would like to call and make an appointment. These vaccination clinics are open to any veteran who is enrolled and participating in VA services.

Veterans may go to our Covid-19 information page where they can access the most updated information for Iron Mountain VA’s vaccination plan.

Visitor restrictions remain in place and face masks (or a face shield or bandana) are required at all times (see wrong and right way to wear a mask). Only Veterans with scheduled appointments will be permitted inside the facility, unless a caregiver is required.  If Veterans are unable to wear a face mask, bandana or face shield, they should contact their provider to set up an appointment via telephone or VA Video Connect (click here for recent article on using VA Video Connect and other virtual care tools).
