H-E-B is one place to get vaccinated with no appointment necessary. (H-E-B)

This far into the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now easier than ever to get vaccinated and protect yourself and your loved ones from the new Delta variant, which is rapidly spreading with four confirmed cases across Travis County.

Those who are unvaccinated are at significantly higher risk of contracting the Delta variant and experiencing more severe symptoms, so here is where you can get your vaccine. Those who are at least 12 years old are eligible for the vaccine.
