Williamson County's Vaccination Plan
 

Williamson County with its partner Family Hospital Systems is opening COVID-19 vaccination sites in Williamson County! The County's COVID-19 vaccination plan is focused on providing vaccines for the State's priority of Phase 1b: those 65 and older and those 16 and older with at least one chronic medical condition. 

Family Hospital Systems will begin vaccinating eligible Texans at the Sun City Ballroom, located at 2 Texas Drive in Georgetown, starting January 20. Vaccinations will be provided through the weekend while supplies last. An appointment will be required before receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

To register for the Sun City site, please visit https://familyhospitalssytems.typeform.com/to/NnnrXftS.  

In addition, FHS will be vaccinating people starting January 20 from their waitlist at a drive-thru site at the Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex, 10211 W Parmer Lane. You must be on the FHS waitlist in order to be contacted for an appointment at that site. Drive-up appointments will not be accepted. Registration for the FHS waitlist is available here

We encourage all residents to use any option to obtain your first dose of vaccine from any approved entity offering it.

Other people at higher risk for infection are those who live in or have recently been in an area with an ongoing spread of COVID-19.

Williamson County & Cities Health District is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation in coordination with the Texas Department of State Health Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local and regional public health and healthcare agencies.

County Judge Signs Orders for Hospital Capacity and Retail During Stay Home Stay Safe

On April 21, 2020, Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell signed new orders to ensure consistency between the Williamson County Stay Home Stay Safe Order issued March 24, 2020, and the State of Texas Executive Orders GA 15 and GA 16.

Effective beginning at 11:59 p.m. on April 21, 2020, the Stay Home Stay Safe Order is amended pertaining to “Healthcare Operations.” The amendment allows for surgeries and procedures under specific conditions, such as hospitals reserving at least 25% of their capacity for the treatment of COVID-19 patients. In addition, the facility cannot request any personal protective equipment from any public source for the duration of the COVID-19 disaster.

Effective beginning at 12:01 a.m. on April 24, 2020, the Stay Home Stay Safe Order is amended to allow retail businesses not defined as essential businesses to operate in limited capacity. These retail establishments can operate if services can be provided through pickup, delivery by mail, or delivery to the customer’s doorstep. In addition, they must operate in compliance with terms required by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).

A copy of the new orders with specific requirements can be found on the County’s website here.
