Williamson County's Vaccination Plan
 

Williamson County with its partner Family Hospital Systems has opened 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. 

This week, Family Hospital Systems will continue vaccinations of individuals in the Phase 1b group by appointment only at the Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex, 10211 Parmer Lane, January 25 and 26, and at the Sun City Social Center Ballroom, 2 Texas Drive, on January 27. People must first pre-register on the FHS waitlist in order to receive an appointment. 

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 65 and older or 16 and older with at least one chronic medical condition. 

To pre-register with FHS, go to https://familyhospitalsystems.com/services/covid-19/.

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