ALL VA's nationwide are requiring the COVID-19 Vaccination. This mandate has been established by the national VHA Office of Academic Affiliations in conjunction with the CDC, as it has been added to the CDC guidelines web site:

Battle Creek VAMC does not require a booster. The initial dose(s) are the only requirement. Exemptions will be accepted on a case by case basis. 

View Exemption Form

Much like the Influenza vaccine, all Health Professions Trainees (HPT) training in a VA facility must be fully vaccinated or have an exemption filed (medical or religious) with the Office of the Designated Education Officer at the VA using the following VA Form 10-263.

If an HPT is not vaccinated or filed an exemption, they cannot come to the VA.


The following must be verified through documented confirmation or through student attestation-

  • Hepatitis B Vaccine
  • Influenza Vaccine
  • MMR Vaccine
  • Varicella Vaccine
  • TDAP Vaccine
  • Negative TB test
