    I have not seen anything in the news about the great work the Veterans Administration is doing in getting veterans the COVID-19 vaccinations.

    In December of last year the VA had received over a million doses and was administering them first to VA hospital staff and hospitalized vets. In January I received a message from the Newton VA clinic to call for an appointment. I was given an appointment for the next day at the Lyons VA campus. They were set up with five stations and so were giving five shot sat a time. There were no lines and no waiting.

    After receiving my vaccination I was given an appointment for the second dose. A month later in mid February I got my second dose. Overall a very pleasant experience. Hats off to the VA.
