COVID-19 VACCINE

City, County & GRMC Submit Joint Vaccine Plan to Texas Department of State Health Services - Read news release HERE

** PLEASE NOTE the City of Seguin is not a registered provider for the COVID-19 vaccine, and does not have any vaccines. The distribution of COVID-19 vaccines is being coordinated by the Texas State Department of Health Services (DSHS). DSHS has outlined a plan for vaccine distribution on their website. Texas currently is in Phase 1 of the distribution plan. This phase outlines vaccine distribution to pharmacies, doctors, long-term care facilities, health departments, and other clinics. During Phase 1, vaccines are being provided first to health care workers, first responders, and residents of long-term care facilities.  Vaccines are also being provided to people age 65 and older and people 16 years of age with at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from the Coronavirus.

Who's receiving the vaccine now?

Document

Priorities for populations receiving the vaccine have been outlined by the CDC and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). Some providers may not have vaccines available yet. Vaccine supply is limited but providers receive more vaccines each week. It will take some time to vaccinate everyone in these priority groups. Individuals who meet requirements provided by the state’s Phase 1A and Phase 1B definitions are currently eligible to receive the vaccine. 

Phase 1A definitions include:

  • Front-line hospital workers
  • Long-term care staff, including custodial and food service staff
  • Emergency response personnel
  • Home health workers
  • Residents of long-term care facilities

Phase 1B definitions include:

  • People 65 years of age and older
  • People 16 years of age and older (18 years or older with Moderna) with at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19, such as but not limited to:
  • Cancer
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease or cardiomyopathies
  • Solid organ transplantation
  • Obesity and severe obesity (body mass index of 30 kg/m2 or higher)
  • Pregnancy
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Type 2 diabetes mellitus

Vaccine Provider List
If you are in Phase 1A or 1B, please visit the Texas COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Locations map to see if and where you might be able to get a vaccine. Ability to get a vaccine will depend on vaccine availability at your provider’s office, clinic, or facility. Each week, the state releases the list of all providers in Texas receiving vaccine. (See allocation lists at links below).  Providers are setting priorities for vaccinations based on the state’s guidelines. Please call ahead to your provider or check the provider’s website for availability. Many providers give vaccine availability information on their websites and are also in the process of implementing registration systems.

Vaccine Hubs
Beginning the week of January 11, Texas will direct most COVID-19 vaccines received to large sites or hubs around the state to vaccinate more than 100,000 people. Vaccine hubs aim to provide more vaccines quicker and easier. Texas vaccine supply is limited (but more arrives every week) and it will take time to vaccinate all.

  • The goal of this plan is to provide more people the vaccine and a simpler way to sign up for an appointment.
  • Providers will focus on vaccinating areas and populations hardest hit by COVID-19.

If you are in Phase 1 and eligible to receive the vaccine, please see the Complete list of Hub providers in Texas to find a hub near you and learn how to register.

Helpful Information about Vaccines                                      
Providers require no documentation of eligibility at vaccine appointment.

Residency is not required to receive a vaccine from the pharmacies and health care providers on the list.

Residency may be required by county health departments providing the vaccine.

Providers may charge for the vaccine. Health insurance plans may cover the cost of the vaccine, so bring insurance information.

Both the COVID‑19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna require two shots to be effective. Both doses need to be from the same manufacturer, spaced 21 or 28 days apart. Full protection from the vaccine usually occurs 1–2 weeks after getting the second dose.
