Fast radio burst (FRBs) are an exciting class of bright, extragalactic, millisecond radio transients.The recent development of large field-of-view (FOV) radio telescopes has caused a rapid rise in the number of identified single burst and repeating FRBs. This has allowed for the extensive multi-wavelength follow-up to search for the potential counterparts predicted by theoretical models. New observations of similar radio transients in Galactic magnetars like SGR 1935+2154 have continued to motivate the search for rapid optical and very-high-energy (VHE, >100 GeV) counterparts. Since 2016 VERITAS has engaged in an FRB observing campaign to search for the prompt optical, and VHE emission from multiple repeating FRBs. We present these new results from VERITAS observations of five repeating sources including data taken simultaneously with bursts observed by the CHIME radio telescope.
