Personally, I wouldn't bother with omega-3 oils.
Recent research conducted on people with cardiovascular risk factors indicate omega 3 oils have no health benefits.
(N Engl J Med 2013; 368:1800-1808May 9, 2013DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa1205409).
My advice is to do your own research and listen to your doctor.
Be wary of the marketing of a lot of 'natural' products and 'bro-science'. In my opinion, if a health claim is not supported with evidence that has been published in a respected peer-reviewed journal then its probably bogus.
I am in a similar situation to yourself, Mojo, and my focus is on sustainable lifestyle change that incorporates a balanced calorie-controlled diet and regular high-intensity exercise with the aid of myfitnesspal.com and a heart rate monitor. I get all my nutrients from my food and I don't take any supplements. As a vegan you may want to boost your b12, but that is a discussion you should have with your doctor. You may just find you might be getting enough b12 in your diet.
All the best,
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
