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: 

This requirment does not include boosters, just the initial dose(s). WJB Dorn VAMC will NOT be accepting any exemptions from trainees at this time.

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.


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 90 days prior to start date
  • Meningitis Vaccine
  • Physical Exam

If you have any questions, please contact (231) 591-2187 Dr. Sara Bush, Director of Externships - [email protected].
