The general public qualifies to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Texas as of Monday, March 29. This comes on the heels of the state’s lifting of the face mask requirement and capacity limitations.
The Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is hopeful Texas’ vaccine supply will increase to meet the expected demand for shots. You should know:
The DSHS still urges vaccination providers to give priority to persons 80+ and most at risk, regardless if they have an appointment. The public will be able to enroll in the Texas Public Health Vaccine Scheduler soon, which sends notification when new clinics and appointments become available.
For the general public to get the COVID-19 shot:
Check the state vaccine availability map.Check Collin County providers and sign-up portals.
For EMPLOYEES to get the COVID-19 shot:
A limited number of vaccinations are available for all City employees (full-time and part-time) who are at least 18 years old and would like to be vaccinated.
