COVID-19 Privacy Resources

Joe Stenaka, Chief Privacy Officer, sharing important tips to protect your privacy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

VA is a key provider of the COVID-19 vaccine to all Veterans, their spouses and caregivers, and CHAMPVA recipients. Find out how to get your vaccine at a VA facility near you.

VA wants to thank each and every one of you who has taken the critical step in protecting your own health as well as the health of those around you by receiving the COVID vaccine. Now that you've taken a step to protect yourself and your family, it is also important to remember to protect your personal data.

To best protect your data and not fall victim to a scam, remember:

  • VA will never ask you for your personal information in an email.
  • VA will never include links that take you to a non-secure page that asks you to provide this information.
  • If someone calls you about getting a vaccine, be sure to verify that they're your VA provider. VA will never ask you to provide your full social security number over the phone.
