Austin Public Health will release 4,000 additional first dose appointments for Tuesday on Monday evening. People who have pre-registered through APH and are eligible members of groups 1A and 1B can log into the system this evening starting at 6:15 p.m.


Once appointments open, users will be added to a queue to schedule an appointment. Being in the queue does not guarantee an appointment.

Typically, the department releases first dose appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, because staff caught up on the appointment backlog caused by the winter storm last month more quickly than expected APH has an excess of first dose appointments available Tuesday.

APH asks that users awaiting a second dose appointment not schedule another first dose appointment. The department is manually scheduling second doses. If you are awaiting a second dose, you can log in to your account here and click "View Appointments and Test Results" to ensure your first dose is marked "Completed." If it isn't, you can fill out a second dose vaccine assistance form here.

If you received your first dose appointment from APH and have not received a second dose appointment within 42 days, you may walk up to any of the department's vaccine sites and present your vaccine card to receive a second dose.
