No More Waiting: Vaccine Providers Move to Direct Scheduling as County Closes Waitlist

Williamson County is no longer accepting names on its COVID-19 vaccine waitlist. The County sent the names of people remaining on its waitlist to their mass vaccine provider Curative to schedule their vaccination appointment. If you have not received an email for an appointment, residents wishing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine should schedule directly with the provider of their choice.  For links to providers, go to www.wilco.org/coronavirus.

“The supply has caught up with the demand. We have made great progress in helping people get vaccinated, and we still have a way to go, but the form in which we do it will change,” said County Judge Bill Gravell. “Going forward, people can directly schedule an appointment with Curative or another provider of their choice just as they would for a flu shot.”

Williamson County still has approximately 30,000 people on its waitlist; however, the County has found that only about 5% of the people invited to schedule an appointment are following through and making an appointment. Many already have received their vaccination from another provider.

More than 193,000 Williamson County residents have received a COVID-19 vaccination. Currently, the Texas Department of State Health Services COVID-19 Vaccination website shows, in Williamson County, approximately 42.14% of the county population 16 and older are vaccinated with at least one dose and 72.57% of those 65 and older have received at least one dose.
