The vaccine is available at no charge, regardless of insurance status, to those who meet the State of Texas criteria. It is important to note, once a vial has been punctured it has to be used within six hours. Please monitor your phone closely and answer all calls if you are on the waitlist. If you do not answer, the Health District will have to go to the next person on the list. They will circle back through the list if and when there is vaccine availability. If you have previously tested positive for COVID-19, you are eligible for the vaccine, so long as you are no longer infectious and have cleared quarantine. If you have been directly exposed to COVID-19 within the last 14 days, you will not be eligible for the vaccine at this time, but can still sign up on the waiting list. You will not be contacted if you do not meet Phase 1A or 1B requirements, however, your name will be saved for the next phase of vaccines when they are available.
What To Do If You Want A COVID-19 Vaccine
- Speak with your physician or medical provider to see if they are administering the vaccine.
