Williamson County's Vaccination Plan
 

Williamson County with its partners Family Hospital Systems and Curative are operating 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 1a: frontline healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities and Phase 1b: those 65 and older and those 16 and older with at least one chronic medical condition. Due to the limited number of vaccines available, we urge everyone to honor the state's phased-in approach to providing vaccines and register only if you are in Phase 1a or 1b. 

Williamson County has set up a call center to serve as a resource for residents interested in COVID-19 vaccine information. The call center number is 512-943-1600 and is answered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

If you need to reschedule your appointment with FHS, email [email protected] The call center cannot reschedule appointments. 

Family Hospital Systems will continue vaccinations of individuals in the priority groups by appointment only at the Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex, 10211 Parmer Lane, and Curative will vaccinate by appointment at the Georgetown ISD Athletic Complex, enter off of Stadium Dr.

People must first pre-register on the County's centralized waitlist in order to receive an appointment. 

Once you are contacted that it is your turn to receive the vaccine, Williamson County can offer technical assistance with completing your registration paperwork at a Vaccine Registration Technical Assistance site. No appointment is necessary. Below are locations and NEW dates and times effective March 1:

  • Hill Country Bible Church, 3300 Little Elm Trail, Gym Building, Cedar Park, Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • First Baptist Taylor, 2500 Mallard Lane, Taylor, Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • The Oaks in Sun City, 301 Del Webb Blvd., Georgetown, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

We encourage all residents in Phase 1b to use any option to obtain your first dose of vaccine from any approved entity offering it.

Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that is spreading from person to person in parts of the United States. The risk of infection with COVID-19 is higher for people who are close contacts of someone known to have COVID-19, for example healthcare workers, or household members. 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.

If you or someone you know is feeling overwhelmed by the COVID-19 pandemic, help is available. Call the toll-free Texas Health and Human Services COVID-19 Mental Health Support Line at 833-986-1919 to speak with a mental health professional 24/7.

Williamson County COVID-19 Vaccination Plan Update

Williamson County COVID-19 Vaccination Plan Update

COVID-19 vaccine providers in Williamson County are preparing to administer 9,700 first doses throughout the week, adding to the continued efforts of getting the vulnerable population in the community vaccinated. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, the following providers will be vaccinating people who have signed up to receive their first shot.  

·        Family Hospital Systems, 8,000 doses.  

·        Williamson County and Cities Health District, 1000 doses.  

·        Lone Star Circle of Care in Cedar Park, 100 doses.  

·        Lake Aire Med Center Senior Health and Wellness, 100 doses.  

·        WellMed in Leander, 400 doses.  

·        Lone Star Circle of Care, TAMU Health Science Center Family Health, 100 doses.  

“Getting more vaccines for our community members is instrumental to support our efforts of keeping our most vulnerable residents safe and protected from COVID-19,” said Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell. “While our public-private partnerships have been key in getting this work done, we are hopeful we will get a larger supply of vaccines through the support of our state and federal leaders.”  

Starting today, people who are interested in getting on the COVID-19 vaccine waitlist through the County’s vaccine hub provider Family Hospital Systems can visit www.wilco.org to get registered. Williamson County is now maintaining the waitlist which will be used by FHS and other COVID-19 vaccine hub providers, such as Curative Inc, that have established agreements with the county to provide the COVID-19 vaccine. On the County’s website, people who sign-up to get on the waitlist will be able to check if their name is on the list and edit their information or remove themselves if they receive the vaccine elsewhere.  

A big part of the County’s vaccination plan includes the assistance of volunteer-run Vaccine Registration Technical Assistance (VRTA) centers. The centers are made possible thanks to local partners willing to fill the need for technical support by providing wi-fi connectivity, assistance with uploading documents, and other technical needs. These are the County’s three VRTA centers and their availability: 

·        First Baptist Taylor, 2500 Mallard Lane, Taylor, beginning February 9, will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

·        Hill Country Bible Church, 3300 Little Elm Trail, Gym Building, Cedar Park, beginning February 15, will be open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

·        Sun City Ballroom, 2 Texas Drive, Georgetown, is open Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

The County’s first VRTA center at the Sun City Ballroom will continue servicing people on an appointment basis only; however, appointments are not necessary to get help at the VRTA centers in Taylor and Cedar Park.  

The County’s call center, phone number 512-943-1600, remains open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. to serve as a resource of information to community members. Just in the first week of operation, the call center received more than 16,000 calls. The call center has added staff members to keep up with the influx of calls the county has received since launching the service Monday, February 1.
