NEWS: The future of medicine is in your genes. We need your help - Fifteen minutes and a blood draw are all it takes to make a lasting difference.

The Albany Stratton VA Medical Center is enrolling Veterans into the Million Veteran Program, a national research program that studies how differences in genes, lifestyle and military experiences affect Veterans' health and illnesses. The goal is to one day give Veterans specialized care with targeted treatments and preventions based on their genetics and medical history.

Veterans can enroll online at www.mvp.va.gov or by scheduling an appointment at the Stratton VA by calling 866-441-6075. You do not need to receive VA health care to join VA’s Million Veteran Program or schedule an appointment at our facility.

What is the Million Veteran Program (MVP)? Since launching in 2011, nearly 840,000 Veteran partners have joined MVP, helping researchers better understand the genetics of disease in Veterans. By collecting DNA from as many Veterans a possible, along with information on their health, lifestyle and military experiences, researchers are beginning to answer important questions like:
• Why does a certain treatment work well for some Veterans but not others?
• Why are some Veterans at greater risk for developing an illness?
• How can we prevent certain illnesses in the first place?

If more women and diverse populations enroll, MVP researchers can discover new medical breakthroughs that work for all Veterans.

What does it mean to enroll? To join MVP, you’ll be asked to:
• Complete a consent process online at www.mvp.va.gov or at the Albany Stratton VA Medical Center by calling 1-866-441-6075 to make an appointment.
• Allow access to your health records.
• Provide a one-time blood sample for genetic analysis.
• Fill out occasional surveys about your health and lifestyle.

Once enrolled, you may be contacted again on a periodic basis if additional information is requested, or if there is a research opportunity you may want to consider. You will also receive newsletters about the program at least once a year with updates on research findings and other topics of interest.

For more questions about MVP, explore their FAQs or speak with a staff member at 866-441-6075.

NEWS: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Aug. 12, 2021

VA expands mandate for COVID-19 vaccines among VHA employees

WASHINGTON — Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough will expand his previous COVID-19 vaccine mandate tomorrow, Aug. 13th, to apply to most Veterans Health Administration (VHA) employees and volunteers and contractors who work in VHA facilities, visit VHA facilities or otherwise come into contact with VA patients and healthcare workers as part of their duties.

Under the expanded mandate, employees who will need to be vaccinated include Hybrid Title 38, and Title 5 VA health care personnel—such as psychologists, pharmacists, social workers, nursing assistants, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, peer specialists, medical support assistants, engineers, housekeepers and other clinical, administrative, and infrastructure support employees who come into contact with VA patients and healthcare workers.

“We’re now including most VHA employees and volunteers and contractors in the vaccine mandate because it remains the best way to keep Veterans safe, especially as the Delta variant spreads across the country,” Secretary McDonough said. “This pandemic is not over and VA must do everything in our power to protect Veterans from COVID-19. With this expanded mandate, we can once again make—and keep—that fundamental promise.”

The department’s decision is supported by numerous medical organizations, including the American Hospital Association, America’s Essential Hospitals and a Multisociety group of the leading Infectious Disease Societies. The American Medical Association, American Nurses Association, American College of Physicians, American Academy of Pediatrics, Association of American Medical Colleges, and National Association for Home Care and Hospice also endorsed mandating COVID-19 vaccination for health care workers.

As with the previous mandate, directive affected employees will have eight weeks to provide proof of vaccination to their local VHA Occupational Health Office.

All VA employees are eligible to be vaccinated at no personal expense at any of our facilities and would also receive four hours of paid administrative leave after demonstrating they have been vaccinated.

To learn more about the vaccine, its safety and effectiveness, visit the VA COVID-19 information page.

Good morning! My dad is at the Albany Stratton VA Hosp ICU. Due to Covid measures we can’t visit him. I wonder if it could be possible for the staff chaplain to coordinate with a catholic priest for the administration of the anointing of the sick sacrament, preferably in Spanish, if possible. Thanks!
I had Excellent treatment yesterday by the ER staff yesterday when I came in with breathing difficulty. You all need to hear about the positive impacts you have on us❤️! Thank you for all you do!
Closing the Troy VA clinic? How's that help the troy area vets.
Good morning. Just a question. Why not open the patio parking entrance on the main drive? Would it would reduce the traffic at the front of the building and increase pedestrian safety? I thought it had been closed off for valet parking but since there is no valet maybe open it like employee parking?
When will we be able to use our state's covid vaccination ID app?
Are there any plans to restripe the patient parking lot? It appears the spots are hard to see. Cars taking up multiple spots.
When will there be a patient advocate in the building again?
Is there a reason why the patient handicapped spots are blocked off?
I am of the belief that probably 90% of the medical staff of the VetVeterans AdAdministration are dumb,lazy,idiots! I have been waiting for 4 months for a decision as to weather I am going to have spinal cord surgery. And Syracuse nuor surgery has me running around in circles. I have traveled to Syracuse from Albany New York twice for absolutely no reason at all! Just to be told to go home and wait for a phone call. Then I was told to get yet another CT scan done. I did that on the 9th of April I then got a phone call to schedule a phone appointment with them. But they made it for over a month in the middle of May. So I call them to tell them that I am tired of waiting that I can’t wait anymore and I need a decision ASAP! So I get a call back and we made an appointment for today at 10:00am. Well don’t you know I never got that call because it seems like they made it an in person appointment. Now of they did ask me if I would be available at that time and I of course said yes. Well I just found out that dumb s**t’s made it for an in person appointment. FiFirst of all there is no way that I could have made any arrangements to travel out there in the time allowed. So I called them and I am waiting for them to call me back so I can call them idiots on the phone.
Was at this facility twice this week .Both times I was misdiagnosed by the same PA. How does one get that far in the medical field and can't properly diagnose a patient. He was rude, arrogant, taunted me on how I was dressed and threw paperwork at me and rushed out the door. He failed to do a proper test to get the correct diagnosis . I had to go to another hospital to get proper testing and the diagnosis was worse then what this PA told me. Im sick and tired of being treated like a burden and the abuse this facility allows its employees to do to the vets. Animals are treated better then vets are. When will the administrator step up and prevent the patients from being abused!???? Everytime I go there for something they treat you like a liar and you are faking it. Im tired of being sent to an advocate and the issues are swept under the rug. Maybe its time to go public and air the VA's dirty laundry for everyone to see. Maybe then changes will be made and these abusers are held accountable for their actions.
