The Texas Department of State Health Services will allocate 332,750 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to 212 providers this week, with the bulk assigned to hub providers that are focused on widespread community distribution events. Six of those providers are in Travis County.

With the latest allocation of 16,450 sent to Travis County this week, the county will have received 104,275 doses of the vaccine. Local public health officials estimate that there are 285,000 area residents who fall in the 1A and 1B priority groups, meaning that around 37% of them should have access to doses seven weeks into the rollout process.

Here's where the latest allotment is going:


  • Austin Public Health (12,000 doses)
  • UT Health Austin (1,950 doses)
  • CommUnity Care David Powell Clinic (100 doses)
  • DSHS Central Pharmacy Warehouse (2,200 doses)
  • Texas Department of Public Safety (100 doses)
  • CommUnity Care Del Valle (100 doses)
Although these providers may have doses to administer, many are limiting their supply to existing patient networks or reaching out to eligible candidates directly, rather than working through a waitlist system. View a list of providers with a waitlist here.

The DSHS Pharmacy does not serve the general public.
