COVID-19 Vaccine Information
Houston is beginning to administer its limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines to those who fall under 1A or 1B according to the guidelines by the State of Texas. Houston's vaccine clinic's appointments are booked for the rest of the month, but as the city receives more supplies, more appointments will open up. It's important to note that after vaccination you will be scheduled for a second dose one month out, as both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses for full efficacy. As of the morning of January 4, the health department received a total of 10,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine. Of the allotment, the department administered 3,871 doses and transferred 1,900 doses to other providers.
There are other vaccine providers but supplies are limited everywhere. You may visit the Texas COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Location Map but be sure to call ahead to see if a supply is available. Larger healthcare providers might also have their own supply of vaccines. As vaccine availability increases in 2021 and more people become eligible, people will be able to get vaccinated at doctor’s offices, pharmacies, hospitals, and other “usual” sites.
How can I find out when more city appointments open up?
