COVID-19 vaccines are available now to all Texans over the age of 12.These vaccines represent a global effort to produce, test, and manufacture a powerful tool in the fights against the novel coronavirus, thus making mass vaccination a major step toward ending the pandemic. Every vaccine currently available has been proven safe and effective, so get any COVID-19 vaccine that you can.
DO THEY WORK?
The Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines have all been shown to be safe and very effective in large studies that involved a diverse mix of people. While the vaccines stop people from getting sick, it is not yet clear if it stops them from spreading COVID-19 to other people. It is also not yet known how long those who receive the vaccine will be immune to illness. So, even after vaccinated, everyone must still wear a face covering, physically distance, and avoid gatherings.
VACCINE IS FREE
Everyone aged 12 and older is now eligible to receive a vaccine in Texas. It is free to everyone. Schedule your free vaccination now.

I GET A VACCINE?
Currently, the supply of the vaccines is limited. It will take some time for everyone to be able to get vaccinated. Some vaccines require two doses to be effective. The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) mandates that everyone 12 or older is now eligible to receive a vaccine in Texas.
