COVID-19 Vaccine Waitlist

Sign up for our waitlist.

Galveston County, UTMB Health and the Galveston County Health District offer a COVID-19 vaccine waitlist developed in association with Clear Culture.

If you are interested in the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine (the single-dose vaccine option), please sign up for our waitlist and indicate your preference. The single-dose vaccine remains in short supply, but we will contact you via text and email with a vaccine invitation when we have doses available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Waitlist FAQs

  • How will I be contacted when there is a vaccine appointment available?

    An email and text message from Clear Culture will be sent to the email address and mobile number associated with your account to alert you to schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine.

    Within the notification, there will be a separate link provided to take you to an online appointment site where you can schedule your appointment. The scheduling link will only be valid until all available slots are full, so make sure to act as soon as you receive it. The number of invitations sent will generally align with available vaccine appointments. The link is specific to the person being invited to make an appointment and should not be shared. Once the appointment is made, that person will be deleted from the waitlist. (For those getting the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, you do not need to be in the waitlist to schedule your second dose of vaccine. That appointment will be set when you get the first dose.)

  • Can I sign up on behalf of my relatives if they are unable to do so themselves?

    Yes. However, you will need a separate email address for each person to create an account.

  • How many vaccines will you have available for distribution?

    Vaccines are received from the state, and availability may vary week to week. Supplies are steadily increasing. Our plan is to distribute all vaccines as quickly as possible, as we receive them. 

  • I don’t have regular access to email or a phone that accepts text messages. What can I do?

    Those who may not have internet access or a working email address can contact the Galveston County Vaccination Hub phone bank for assistance with scheduling an appointment. The phone bank is available at (877) 389-2318 weekdays from 8 am to 5 pm. 

    Please plan to provide a family member or close friend’s email address and/or cell phone number when creating your account. When it’s your turn to be vaccinated—we will send the scheduling link via email and/or text message to those contacts. We're taking this approach to avoid delays and accelerate the distribution of vaccines.

  • Do I need to use a certain web browser for the waitlist? For the scheduling application?

    Both the waitlist application and scheduling tool work best with modern web browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Microsoft Edge. There can be compatibility issues with versions of Internet Explorer. Both applications have been tested and work on mobile phones. You'll have the best experience and performance on a desktop, laptop or tablet, if those options are possible.

  • How do I know I successfully scheduled a vaccine appointment?

    Once you successfully schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment WITH UTMB HEALTH, you will:

    1. Almost immediately receive a confirmation email with appointment details from ""
    2. See a confirmation screen that looks like the graphic below:Appointment Scheduled Confirmation

    If you are a UTMB MyChart user and log into MyChart to schedule your vaccine appointment, the appointment will also display in your patient profile.

  • Do I need to go online to reregister for the second vaccine appointment?

    No. If you were given a Moderna or Pfizer two-dose vaccine, the appointment for your second dose is made at the time your first vaccine is given. It will be 3-4 weeks after the date of the first, depending on which vaccine you are given, at the same location.

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.

Need to Reschedule an Existing Vaccine Appointment with UTMB?
If your appointment was made with UTMB, send an email to Include your name and date of birth, along with the date of your original vaccination appointment and whether this is your first or second vaccination. We will work to accommodate your request as our vaccine supply and appointment slots allow.
