The Veterans’ Administration in Spokane is expanding its Covid vaccination efforts to veterans, their caregivers and family members.

The expansion is authorized by the Saves Lives Act approved recently by Congress.

Spokane is on the front lines of rolling out a new electronic medical records system for veterans’ health care.

This week, two officials from the Veterans’ Administration are at Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center, training staff how to use the new system. Agency officials believe it will help veterans and active duty service members better navigate multiple health care systems.
