As more rounds of COVID-19 vaccine doses make their way to the Houston area, local county leaders and health officials are working to implement the best plans possible for distribution.

Here's a vaccine distribution breakdown.


City of Houston/Harris County


Updated: April 19, 2021

The Houston Health Department is offering about 9,000 COVID-19 vaccination appointment slots for the week of April 19.

Appointments are for first doses of the Moderna vaccine, approved for people 18 and older. The vaccination is free and does not require proof of residency.

Approximately 1,000 appointment slots will be available Monday at Bayou City Event Center on 9401 Knight Rd. If you're unable to snag an appointment at this location, don't worry. About 1,800 other appointment slots will be available Monday for sign up to get vaccinated Friday or Saturday at Rodeo Reed Parking Lot at 2098 Reed Road.

The department's four health centers will have about 900 appointments open for Monday through Wednesday. Another 3,000 appointments will be available at Delmar Stadium on 2020 Mangum Rd for Friday and Saturday.

The department will also host a targeted community vaccination clinic Wednesday through Friday at Mission Milby Community Development Corporation at 2220 Broadway St. Appointments are preferred but walk-ins will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or until the site reaches its daily capacity of approximately 165 doses.

Two additional targeted community vaccination clinics offering 1,800 doses will be announced later in the week.

To register for an appointment, visit the Houston Health Department website or call 832-393-4220 for registration assistance.

Houstonians can secure appointments for the Pfizer vaccine at NRG Park by visiting the Harris County website or by calling 832-927-8787.

Those who arrive without confirmed appointments will be turned away.

Harris County launched a COVID-19 vaccine waitlist, which anyone 16 and older can add their name.

People will be selected for a vaccine slot based on a prioritized and randomized process.

For those without computer access, you can call 832-927-8787 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday to Saturday. Help is available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.

Galveston County


Updated: April 15, 2021

The University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston County Health District, and Galveston County joined together to create one COVID-19 vaccine waitlist, which anyone can sign up for.

For those who may not have internet access or a working email address, a phone bank can assist them with the waitlist registration process. They will be asked to provide an email and cell phone number for a relative or close friend to ensure they receive scheduling notifications. The phone bank can be reached at 877-389-2318 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Signing up on the waitlist does not mean you are scheduled for a vaccine appointment. What it means is that you will be contacted when it is your turn based on age and medical conditions.

Vaccines are being administered at the Galveston County Health District in Texas City.

Waller County
