State launches COVID vaccine scheduler

With Texas opening COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to everyone age 16 and older as of March 29, the Texas Department of State Health Services is launching the Texas Public Health Vaccine Scheduler to assist Texans in receiving the vaccine.

The scheduler gives people one place to sign up for a COVID-19 shot through multiple public health departments, including the eight DSHS public health regions, which provide public health services in nearly 200 Texas counties, and more than a dozen local health entities across the state.

Texas residents can visit getthevaccine.dshs.texas.gov to create a profile that includes their contact information, demographic details, and preferred time of day and days of the week for an appointment.

Within a day, people eligible to be vaccinated will be matched with the next available appointment within their home county and preferred times.

If no appointments are available, the scheduler will continue to search for appointments as new clinics are scheduled and contact individuals when they have an appointment.
