COVID-19 Vaccination Updates

Galveston County Vaccination Hubs

On Jan. 16, UTMB Health and the Galveston County Health District (GCHD) were designated as vaccination hubs by the state of Texas. We are very pleased to be working with the GCHD, the Galveston County and other partners to bring mass vaccination capability to our area.

The vaccination program continues to depend on available vaccine supply from the state, and only individuals in Phase 1A (health care workers) and Phase 1B (high-risk individuals) are currently eligible to get the vaccine. Our commitment is to use available supply as quickly as possible after it is received.

We will pilot a by-appointment-only drive-through vaccination event at Walter Hall Park in League City on Saturday, Jan. 23. Visit this site frequently for the latest updates on vaccination locations and scheduling, which will be determined each week as supplies allow.
