Covid-19 Vaccine Information


Does your practice currently have the COVID-19 Vaccine available?

Not yet. Our application to receive vaccine from the State is currently pending. We expect to be approved by the end of February.

Does this mean I will receive my vaccine from your clinic in February?

Unfortunately, that is unlikely. We expect our initial allotments to be small as manufacturers struggle to meet global demand.

When can I expect to receive my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine?

We are partnering with the federal and state government to administer the Covid-19 vaccine as it becomes available to the general public, following the CDC priority schedule. We do not have start date at this time but expect to start vaccinating patients before Spring. Availability will depend on vaccine supply and the phased administration schedule.

What is the Vaccine Phase Schedule?

The CDC has created a public health priority schedule ensure highest risk patients are inoculated first. Our state is in Phase 1A and 1B. Phase 1A includes healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities. Phase 1B includes Texans over the age of 65 and persons 16+ with at least one chronic medical condition. Subsequent phases are still under consideration. They will include lower risk populations. Please visit DHSH’s website for more information on each phase. https://www.dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/immunize/vaccine.aspx.

How will I know when it is my turn to receive the vaccine?

We encourage you to occasionally check our website for up-to-date info on our vaccination campaign. Feel free to sign up for our contact list to be informed when new information becomes available from our clinic. Keep in mind, you may receive a text message or call from our staff inviting you to schedule an appointment for your dose at our clinic.

How will you be administering vaccines?

We will administer vaccines by invitation and appointment as soon as we receive vaccine from the state. Plans for administering phase 1C, 2, and 3 are currently under consideration.

Does my doctor recommend the COVID-19 Vaccine?

Yes, our physicians strongly urge most patients to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. Tell your vaccination provider about all your medical conditions, including if you have any allergies, have a fever, have a bleeding disorder or are on a blood thinner, are immunocompromised or are on a medicine that affects your immune system, are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, are breastfeeding, have received another COVID-19 vaccine.

Do I still need to get vaccinated if I have already had and recovered from Covid-19?

Yes, the CDC recommends that you should be offered the vaccine even after infection. However, you should wait until the illness has resolved and you have met the criteria to discontinue isolation.

How can I indicate my interest in receiving my vaccine?

We are thrilled by your interest to keep you and your family safe. Feel free to fill out this form to be added to our contact list. Keep in mind, completing this form does not guarantee a spot in line nor dose. We must follow public health guidance to prioritize limited supply.
