COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs

For information regarding vaccine information, please visit the Texas Department of State Health Services website for frequently asked questions.

Who is eligible to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine now?

As of Monday, March 29, 2021, everyone age 16 and older is now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Texas.


The state’s Expert Vaccine Allocation Panel recommended opening vaccination to everyone who falls under the current Food and Drug Administration emergency use authorizations. All vaccines are authorized for people age 18 and older. The Pfizer vaccine is authorized for people 16 and older.

School and Licensed Child Care Personnel:
With the federal directive, the following education and child care personnel are now eligible to be vaccinated in Texas:

  • Those who work in pre-primary, primary, and secondary schools;
  • Head Start and Early Head Start programs (including teachers, staff, and bus drivers); and
  • Those who work as or for licensed child care providers, including center-based and family care providers.

Additional information for educators and school staff is available in the Texas Education Agency (TEA) K-12 COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ.

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
