How do I get access to the Vaccine?
If you are eligible, you have two options to get the vaccine: you can get vaccinated at a large vaccine hub or at a local vaccine provider.
Beginning in January, Texas established large vaccination sites or hubs around the state. The goal of these hubs is to provide more people the vaccine and a simpler way to sign up for an appointment.

Please check the COVID‑19 Vaccination Hub Providers page to find a hub near you and learn how to register. Remember, vaccine supply is still limited in Texas, even though more arrives each week.

  • To register for an appointment at the McLennan County-Waco Health District Vaccine Hub, visit www.covidwaco.com  
  • The vaccine is no cost for those for insured and non-insured
