COVID-19 vaccines are being distributed through the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) directly to individual providers such as hospitals, pharmacies, physicians’ offices and clinics. There is a plan for the MCPHD Clinic to vaccinate members of the general public when supply is available. When that happens, a link to make an appointment online will be posted here. Appointment scheduling will not be available by phone.
