(Austin Regional Clinic)

The Texas Department of State Health Services will allocate 333,650 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to 260 providers this week, with the bulk assigned to hub providers that are focused on widespread community distribution events. Eight of those providers are in Travis County.


Austin Public Health and UT Health Austin, the clinical wing of Dell Medical School, have been designated hub providers by DSHS and will receive additional doses of the vaccine this week. An additional six providers in Travis County will receive smaller allocations of 100 to 200 doses. Those providers that have already received allocations and need to administer second doses will also receive corresponding allotments.

In total Travis County has received 73,175 doses of the vaccine, with 14,650 being sent to Travis County this week. Here's where the latest allotment is going:

  • APH (12,000 doses)
  • UT Health Austin (1,950 doses)
  • Carousel Pediatrics Southbrook (100 doses)
  • CommUnity Care Rundberg (100 doses)
  • Lone Star Circle of Care at El Buen Samaritano (100 does)
  • Lone Star Circle of Care at Ben White Health Clinic (100 doses)
  • LSCC Family Care Center at Northwest (100 doses)
  • Texas Department of Criminal Justice - Travis County (200 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 of list of providers with a waitlist here.
