What Is a Vaccine Hub?
Beginning in January, Texas established large vaccination sites or hubs around the state. The goal of these hubs is to provide more people the vaccine and a simpler way to sign up for an appointment. Providers will focus on vaccinating areas and populations hardest hit by COVID‑19.
Phase 1A and 1B individuals are eligible to receive a vaccine at these hubs, regardless of where they reside.
Phase 1A: Front-line healthcare workers and residents at long-term care facilities
Phase 1B: People over 65 or with a chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19
Supply is Limited: Be Patient. Check with a Vaccine Hub Near You.
Below is a list of vaccine hub providers in Hidalgo County. Check for appointment availability through the hub’s registration website or by calling if a website isn’t available.
Please note: Do not show up at a vaccine hub without first signing up or checking the provider’s instructions for scheduling. Each hub’s registration process is different, so look carefully at the hub’s registration site for details. Depending on the provider, you may be placed on a waiting list and/or may be contacted (phone, email, or text) when vaccines become available. Vaccine supply is still limited, and even hub providers may already have long waiting lists or may be no longer accepting appointments for the week.
