Mountain Home VA Healthcare System
COVID-19 Vaccine Saturday Clinic in Knoxville
This Saturday, February 27, the William C. Tallent Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC), located at 8033 Ray Mears Boulevard in Knoxville, TN, will be hosting a COVID-19 Vaccination Walk-in Clinic. The clinic is open from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. for eligible Veterans 65 years and older who are eligible for care at Mountain Home VA in Johnson City, Tennessee, and/or already receiving care at the William C. Tallent CBOC. Veterans who plan to come to the walk-in clinic for their first dose should make plans to return for their second dose at the same location. The second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is given 28 days (+/- 4 days) after the first dose. Following the administration of the first dose of the vaccine, each Veteran will receive an appointment card for when they should return for their second dose. The second dose will also be administered at the William C. Tallent CBOC.
Those Veterans currently receiving chemotherapy treatment MUST have written documentation from their oncologist stating they are approved to receive the vaccine. The team at William C. Tallent CBOC will be unable to provide the vaccine to anyone who is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment without documentation from their treating physician. Veterans receiving oncology treatment at Mountain Home VA Medical Center should ask their oncologist to add approval for the vaccine to their patient chart.
Due to high demand, there may be a wait to receive a vaccine. Please bring and wear a mask, and be aware that visitors are not allowed inside the building. If you can’t make these walk-in hours, or our vaccine supply runs out on Saturday, don’t worry! We will be announcing additional COVID-19 Vaccine clinic hours soon!
For additional clinic information, including upcoming hours at the James H. Quillen VA Medical Center campus, please call 423.926.1171 ext. 8.
