COVID-19 Vaccine Information
The Texas Department of State Health Services has published a map showing all COVID-19 vaccine providers. Not all providers are vaccinating the public or people in priority groups. It is advised to contact the provider in advance to confirm vaccination location, that they have the vaccine on hand, and that you are eligible. Vaccines are available at no charge, regardless of insurance status. LEARN MORE >>

COVID-19 Testing Information
Your doctor will help make the decision if you should get tested for COVID‑19. If you do not have health insurance, you can still get tested for COVID‑19 if your doctor or healthcare provider recommends it. For information about testing, you just need to call your doctor and/or access care the way you usually do. If you need help finding a doctor or accessing medical care, call 2‑1‑1 and they can direct you to low- or no-cost providers in your area. LEARN MORE >>
