Vaccine Provider Locations Map

(from the Texas Department of State Health Services)

The TXDSHS map shows all COVID-19 vaccine providers that have received a shipment of vaccine and includes information submitted to DSHS by providers when they enrolled. Not all providers are vaccinating the public or people in all priority groups.

Please contact providers in advance to confirm vaccination location and hours, that they have the vaccine on hand, and that you are eligible for vaccination at that site.

COVID-19 Vaccine is available at no charge, regardless of insurance status.
