Commissioners Court Hears County COVID-19 Vaccination Plan

January 12, 2021, the Williamson County Commissioners Court heard a presentation on a County coordinated COVID-19 vaccination plan which was submitted to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) for approval. DSHS is the entity that receives and distributes the COVID-19 vaccines in Texas. Williamson County’s plan would go into effect if the state allocates vaccines to the County for this plan. To read the Executive Summary of the plan, click here. To view the presentation, click here. 

The vaccination plan includes agreements with Curative Medical Associates Inc. and Family Hospital Systems to administer the COVID-19 vaccine. Family Hospital Systems already have a contract with Williamson County to administer COVID-19 vaccines to first responders in Phase 1a. Williamson County’s plan would target residents that fall in the state’s Phase 1b group. Williamson County has approximately 120,000 residents who qualify for the vaccine in Phase 1b.

Williamson County’s vaccination plan includes working with our private partners to staff five fixed locations and several large-scale sites across the county.  Locations are planned in Georgetown, Round Rock, Cedar Park, North Austin, and Taylor.  The plan also includes utilizing a mobile vaccination van to address our homebound elderly and rural populations. 

“We have been proactive in creating a plan, and we are ready. We are working diligently to get the vaccine as soon as possible to our residents; however, we are relying on the State of Texas to provide us with the vaccine,” said Precinct 3 Commissioner Valerie Covey. “Williamson County excels at working in partnerships and collaborating with others in order to bring needed services to our residents. With this plan, we think we have a great way to reach all areas of the county.”

Williamson County will post information on its COVID-19 information page www.wilco.org/coronavirus when the State gives vaccines to Williamson County and the plan is activated. This information will include how to register for the vaccine.
