COVID-19 Vaccine is currently being distributed in a phased approach based on the recommendation of the Department of State Health Services and the Expert Vaccine Allocation Panel.There are providers in Angelina, Polk and San Augustine counties that have the ability to store and distribute the COVID-19 vaccine.We hope to begin holding more vaccination clinics soon at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center in Lufkin.
The Deep East Texas area launched an online platform for the public to sign up to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The online registration includes qualification questions to determine if you meet the criteria to be vaccinated at this time.
It will take time for Texas’ vaccine supply to meet the demand, so we are not guaranteed a set number of doses each week. We are working together with the East Texas medical community and local government officials to get people in priority populations vaccinated first.
- Phase 1A- Healthcare workers
- Phase 1B- 65 or older
- Phase 1B- 18 yrs old and older with chronic medical conditions that increase your risk for severe COVID-19 illness
- School Employee/Staff, Licensed Childcare and Head Start Employee/Staff
