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.

Williamson County’s Wilco Forward Program Extended

Williamson County’s Wilco Forward Program Extended

The Williamson County Commissioners Court approved allocating more of the County’s federal CARES Act funds from the $93 million it received for the Wilco Forward program. The program provides financial assistance due to COVID-19 to various entities in our community, including businesses, cities, emergency service districts, school districts, and residents.

From the original $93 million that was awarded to Williamson County by the federal government for COVID-19 relief, more than $62.5 million has been used to fund different phases of the WilCo Forward Program. For details on those phases, please click here.  

The Commissioners Court approved the distribution of the following funds to be used out of the nearly $30 million that was unallocated. 

·        $365,000 will be used to pay for COVID-19 testing and COVID-19 vaccine-related programs.  

·        $200,000 will go towards assisting the local Emergency Services Districts.  

  • Approved an increase in the rent and utility assistance program to a total budget of $8 million. 

The Commissioners Court also extended the Wilco Forward Phase III assistance program from a total of three months to six months. The Round Rock Area Serving Center, The Caring Place, The Salvation Army, and Hill Country Community Ministries all serve as conduits for the rent and utility assistance. The criteria each entity is following to assess eligibility and the service areas each entity is covering can be found here. Residents living in the city limits of Austin should contact the City of Austin for assistance at austintexas.gov.  

The federal government extended the deadline to use CARES Act funds until December 31, 2021.
