An Austin ISD elementary reading teacher gets a COVID-19 vaccine through a partnership with Ascension Seton.

This story has been updated as of Jan. 25 with the latest information.

The Texas Department of State Health Services will allocate 16,450 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to six providers in Travis County this week. As of Sunday, 6.1% of Travis County residents have received at least one dose, up from nearly 5% a week ago.

If you're in the remaining 94% and looking for an appointment, nine regional providers are offering updates or waitlist spots for future allotments.


        1. 38th Street Pharmacy, 711 W. 38th St., Ste. C3
          This local pharmacy will contact those who sign up for its COVID-19 Vaccine Contact List as its supply is replenished. It last received an allocation in late December.
        2. Austin Public Health, multiple locations
          APH is a designated hub provider and will receive a third batch of 12,000 doses from the state this week, bringing its total supply to 37,300 so far. It has an online pre-registration system, where individuals will be asked to create an account and complete an assessment. If they meet the criteria and appointments are still available, they will be able to schedule an appointment; if not, they will be put on a waitlist. APH is prioritizing people who are 65 years of age and older—or more than 129,000 Travis County residents, Director Stephanie Hayden-Howard said Friday.
        3. Bastrop County, 804 Pecan St., Bastrop
          Bastrop County offers a vaccine waiting list here; interested residents may also call 866-268-2289 to access the same service.
        4. Baylor Scott & White Health, multiple locations
          Sign up for COVID-19 vaccine updates from BSWHealth, one of the three hospital systems operating in the Austin metro, here. The system last received an allocation in late December.
        5. Lamar Plaza Drug Store, 1509 S. Lamar Blvd., Ste. 550
          This local pharmacy will contact those who sign up for its COVID-19 Vaccine Interest Form with more information as it becomes available. It received an allocation of 200 doses earlier this month.
        6. Randalls Pharmacy, multiple locations
          Residents interested in signing up for COVID vaccine updates from this grocery store chain can do so here. Six area locations received a total 700 doses earlier this month.
        7. Tarrytown Pharmacy, 2727 Exposition Blvd., Ste. 105
          This local pharmacy has compiled a communication list so it can alert members when its vaccine supply is refilled. However, the provider last received an allocation of 500 doses in late December and has around 40,000 people on its waitlist.
        8. UT Health Austin, 1601 Trinity Ave., Bldg. A
          UT Austin students and employees who qualify as members of group 1B can sign up for a vaccine waitlist here. The clinical arm of Dell Medical School received 1,950 doses of the vaccine as part of the latest weekly allocation.
        9. Williamson County & Cities Health District, 355 Texas Ave., Round Rock
          WCCHD is not a provider of vaccines but instead serves as an information hub and safety net. Residents can sign up for the district's vaccine news and updates here.
