COVID-19 Response Reports
Since the very beginning of the pandemic, the Department of Veterans Affairs has been on the front lines, caring for Veterans and non-Veterans. As of July 31, 2022, more than 4.37 million Veterans and 351,000 VA employees have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
We have learned a great deal about fighting the virus and worked tirelessly to address the challenges of managing a large-scale organization through an unprecedented health crisis. As a learning organization, we believe it is important to share our successes and challenges with the public, even as we are adapting our response to new information, technologies, and best practices. The ever-changing nature of the virus and the broader public health landscape requires constant re-examination of the status quo. We hope that the lessons learned published in the documents below will benefit individuals, medical providers and hospital systems. Below are the reports we have published thus far, each covering a specific period of the pandemic.
The response to COVID-19 is fundamentally a very human story, featuring people of all industries and geographies coming together to tackle one of the greatest challenges of our generation. The lessons learned in these reports are about those people: VA practitioners who provided health services during our nation’s time of need.
We are pleased to consider requests for media interviews with VA leaders and subject matter experts. Inquiries should be directed to VHA10BCOM2MediaRelationsAction@va.gov.
