TEMPLE, Texas (KBTX) - Enrolled veterans aged 75 and up can go to Olin E. Teague Veterans’ Medical Center in Temple Saturday for the free COVID-19 vaccine.

Vets are encouraged to call 1-800-423-2111 and press #2 to book an appointment. Due to current high call volumes, callers may experience delays. You must remain on the line to be scheduled for a vaccine.

Walk-ins will be accepted until 2 p.m. and vaccinated on dosage availability.
