ABC13 answered vaccine-related questions on specific Houston-area hospitals, major pharmacies and Phase 1B patients.

Now that COVID-19 vaccine doses are widely available, some locations may not require an appointment to get an injection.

Here's a vaccine distribution breakdown.

City of Houston/Harris County

Updated: May 12, 2021

Adolescents 12 to 15 years old can get their dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on Thursday. Harris County Public Health announced it will be vaccinating kids on Thursday, May 13 at NRG. This comes in lew of the CDC endorsing the use of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine.

Parents can pre-register their children to get the vaccine at Ready Harris' website.

Appointments can also be made by calling the Harris County Health's Vaccine Center at 832-927-8787 or parents can drive up without an appointment to the vaccination site at NRG Park any day of the week between 12:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.

Galveston County

Updated: April 24, 2021

The University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston County Health District, and Galveston County joined together to create one COVID-19 vaccine waitlist.

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
