Agent Orange Registry Health Exam

Agent Orange Newsletter: Information for Vietnam-era Veterans and their families.
 
A veteran has his blood drawn by a doctor.

The Agent Orange Registry exam is a free evaluation from which Veterans can learn about possible health problems related to their military service. Participants receive a health exam, including an exposure and medical history, a physical exam, and laboratory tests if needed. Follow-up evaluations can be conducted if a Veteran has a new health concern or a change in their health status.

Eligible Veterans include Veterans who served in Vietnam between 1962 and 1975, Veterans who served in smaller river patrol and swift boats that operated on the inland waterways of Vietnam (Brown Water Veterans), and some Veterans who served in the Korean Demilitarized Zone, Thailand, or other locations where there is documented use, storage, or testing of Agent Orange and other tactical herbicides.

Are you interested in having an Agent Orange Registry health exam? Veterans do not need to be enrolled in VA health care to participate. Contact your local VA environmental health coordinator (http://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/coordinators.asp) to schedule an exam. Find out more about eligibility requirements and the exam at https://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/agentorange/benefits/registry-exam.asp.
