COVID-19 INFORMATION

While it appears there is a surge of COVID cases in and around the Coastal Bend, we have been continually asked two questions–where can I get a vaccine, and where can I be tested to see if I have COVID .
Texas Public Health Vaccine Scheduler

The Texas Vaccine Scheduler helps Texans get scheduled for a COVID-19 vaccine at clinics hosted by participating Texas public health entities.

Register online at Home (texas.gov). You will be notified by email or text when and where to get the vaccine. If there’s not a public health clinic near you, you will be directed to other places to get your vaccine.

Call (833) 832-7067 if you don’t have internet or need help signing up.
