As part of their efforts in defeating COVID-19 the Kansas City VA Medical Center (KCVA) will be holding first dose vaccination clinics for registered veterans in multiple communities around the Kansas City metro area, including one in Cameron later this week.

All vaccinations are by appointment only and Veterans assigned to VA Community Clinic have already received an automated call to make their appointments, but KCVA still has many vaccination appointments open.

Operation Noah’s Ark, as it has been coined by the KCVA, ensures that the allotted vaccine doses delivered each week are administered within that same week. This ensures that no dose goes to waste and no doses remain sitting idle.

The vaccination clinic in Cameron will be held Friday March 12, from 9 A.M. to 1:30 P.M. at the Cameron Regional YMCA, located at 1903 North Walnut. Other clinics are being held in Harrisonville Thursday, in Nevada Friday, and in Warrensburg on Monday, March 15.

Appointment times are still available to all Veterans enrolled in VA health care for the upcoming clinics by calling the KCVA COVID-19 Appointment Call Center at (816) 922-2619, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call 404-828-5257 to check eligibility or enroll by telephone.
