As of 2:30 on Thursday, all appointments in Austin and surrounding areas are fully booked. Appointments became available on Wednesday, while shots began to be administered on Thursday. Appointment updates can be found here.

Vaccine qualifications are determined by local eligibility guidelines. Appointment-only vaccinations are available via the CVS app or website, while those without internet access can contact customer service.
