COVID-19 Vaccine Hub
UTMB Health has been named a COVID-19 vaccine hub provider by the State of Texas. We are pleased to gain this designation and to be working with other partners in the region to vaccinate individuals in the community in accordance with state guidelines. We are focusing on vaccinating as many individuals as possible, as quickly and conveniently as possible, with the vaccine stocks being made available to us.
The two-dose Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is now available for individuals age 12 and older.
This week, the FDA and CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices authorized reducing the minimum age for the vaccine from 16 to 12.
First-dose appointments for anyone age 12 and older—regardless of whether they are a current UTMB patient or not—can be made online now or by calling 832-632-6731. In addition, parents of UTMB pediatric patients who need help scheduling a vaccine appointment can also contact their UTMB pediatrician’s office.
The second dose—which is necessary for maximum protection—will be scheduled when the first dose is given.
UTMB will be administering vaccines to people age 12 and older at our existing COVID vaccine clinics in Galveston, League City and Angleton Danbury. Appointments are required.
We also continue to collaborate with the Galveston County Health District and several Galveston County school districts on this vaccination effort. In addition, our Angleton Danbury Campus is working with school districts in Brazoria County to make vaccines available for students, teachers and staff.
The two-dose Moderna and single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines are currently authorized only for individuals age 18 and older.
UTMB's current masking and social distancing policies remain in effect.
