WilCo Offering Assistance with COVID-19 Vaccine Registration

Williamson County continues to make strides to fulfill the demand for COVID-19 vaccines. While there is a limited supply of doses, there also is a dire need to help people with appointments to fill out their online registration paperwork to be ready for their appointment. To streamline the vaccine registration process and reduce any barriers that could prevent a person from properly registering to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, the County has created a Vaccine Registration Technical Assistance sites (VRTA) at the Sun City Ballroom, 2 Texas Drive in Georgetown. The County aims to expand this program and launch more sites in the coming days. At a VRTA location, which will be predominantly run by trained volunteers, a resident can get help filling out their registration paperwork once they have received a vaccination appointment from Family Hospital Systems (FHS). Vaccines currently are available to those in the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Phase 1a and 1b criteria. For details on the DSHS criteria, please click here. To get added to the waitlist, please visit the FHS website at https://familyhospitalsystems.com/services/covid-19/.
