Fifteen providers in Travis County will receive a total of 104,230 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for the week of March 29 as part of the 16th weekly allocation.

The bulk will go to hub provider Austin Public Health, as well as to Seton Medical Center, which is providing doses to the Central Texas Vaccine Collaborative, host of a drive-thru vaccine clinic at the Circuit of the Americas. The second hub provider in Travis County at the University of Texas, will not receive any new doses this week.

  • Austin Public Health (12,000 doses)
  • Austin Regional Clinic - Far West (1,170 doses)

The Texas Department of State Health Services Central Pharmacy Warehouse and the DSHS Labratory, both located in Travis County, will also receive 45,400 and 24,570 doses, respectively. Neither facility is open to the public; its doses will be used to support efforts such as the statewide Save our Seniors initiative, according to a department spokesperson.

Although these providers may have doses to administer next week, many are limiting their supply to existing patient waitlists or reaching out to eligible candidates directly. A list of providers with a waitlist can be found here.

With this latest allocation, Travis County will have received 532,025 initial or single doses. On Friday, the city celebrated surpassing 29% of the county receiving at least one dose of the vaccine; 11% of the county is fully vaccinated.

Starting Monday, March 29, all adults 16 and older will qualify for the vaccine. DSHS said that those 80 years old and older should be prioritized by vaccine providers.

Texas will receive more than 1 million initial doses of the vaccine next week. DSHS will allocate 818,410 doses to 779 providers across the state.

The federal government will also provide more than 200,000 doses to pharmacy locations and federally-qualified health centers directly. Participating Texas pharmacies include CVS, H-E-B, Walgreens and Walmart. CVS currently lists one Austin-area store with vaccine appointments, but they are fully booked. Participating H-E-B locations can be found here. Walgreens does not currently have any available appointment times at its Austin-area locations; status updates can be found here. Walmart does not currently list any Austin area stores with vaccine appointments.
