The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are currently authorized for those aged 18 and up. The Pfizer vaccine is currently authorized for those aged 12 and up. If you are vaccinated, it is strongly encouraged that you wear a mask when indoors or around others who may be unvaccinated. If you are unvaccinated, please remain vigilant, wear a mask, and take all precautions, to avoid another surge in cases. Read the COVID-19 Risk-Based Guidelines.

Who Is Currently Eligible To Get Vaccinated?

Austin Public Health provides the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, and individuals can schedule an appointment or walk up without an appointment to an APH site.

Please note that APH will not vaccinate those who are currently sick or have not completed their 10-day isolation after testing positive for COVID-19. If you have recovered from COVID-19, and are eligible, you should get vaccinated. Immunity from the vaccine may last longer than the natural immunity you get if you’ve already had COVID-19.

Children who are 12 years of age and older are now eligible to get the Pfizer vaccine. APH offers Pfizer at the Ana Lark Center and the Southeast Library. It is also offered through UT Health AustinTravis County drive-thru, pop-up community events, and other local clinics and pharmacies. 


 Schedule an Appointment Online

While an appointment is NOT needed to receive a vaccine, registering and scheduling an appointment will help you get through the process quicker once you arrive on site. 

Even though the online portal will allow anyone who needs a third dose to make an appointment, if you do not meet the eligibliity criteria when you arrive at the vaccination site, you will be turned away. People who are eligible for first, second, and third doses may also walk up to any of our vaccination sites

  • Register for an account or sign in to your existing account
  • When you register for a COVID-19 Vaccine from APH, choose the VACCINE, not the TESTING option. Testing sites do not have the vaccine.
  • You will need a separate email address for each person seeking a test or vaccine, including children, per Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements.
  • If you already had an account to get tested, you do not need to create a new account for vaccine.
  • You will answer a few questions about yourself, vaccine reaction, and insurance information. Information provided will determine your eligibility for vaccination. 
  • You will not be asked about your immigration status.
  • Information you give during pre-registration is private and confidential by law and will be maintained with confidence.  
  • After registering, you will see a “Schedule a vaccine” button.

After Your Vaccination 

Your vaccine information will be sent to IMMTRAC Texas Immunization Registry, and then used to notify you of your vaccine appointment availability, and for the required follow-up appointment to receive the second record dosage of vaccine.  

Register and get started with V-SAFE, a new smartphone-based, after-vaccination health checker for people who receive COVID-19 vaccines. V-SAFE will use text messaging and web surveys from CDC to check in with vaccine recipients for health problems following COVID-19 vaccination. The system also will provide telephone follow up to anyone who reports medically significant side effects. 


Second Doses 

APH doesn not automatically schedule second doses. If you received your first dose of Moderna from APH, and it has been 28 days or more, you can go online and schedule your second dose appointment. You can also check online at austintexas.gov/covid19-vaccines, or call 3-1-1 or 512-974-2000, for the closest vaccination walk-up locations and times.

— If you miss your scheduled appointment, you can walk up to any of our vaccine sites after 28 days. Call 3-1-1 or 512-974-2000 for walk-up locations and times.

If you received a Moderna first dose from another provider, but need a second dose, you can walk up to any of our vaccine sites (except the Ana Lark Center) and present your CDC vaccination card. If you received a Pfizer first dose from another provider, but need a second dose, you can walk up to the Southeast Library and the Ana Lark Center. Call 3-1-1 or 512-974-2000 for walk-up locations and times.

Fully Vaccinated

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued recommendations on activities that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely resume. APH has also updated our Risk-Based Guidelines for vaccinated individuals.

The new guidance—which is based on the latest science — includes recommendations for how and when a fully vaccinated individual can visit with other people who are fully vaccinated and with other people who are not vaccinated. This guidance represents a first step toward returning to everyday activities in our communities. CDC will update these recommendations as more people are vaccinated, rates of COVID-19 in the community change and additional scientific evidence becomes available.  

Third Doses

APH is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s eligibility guidelines and is prepared to provide the THIRD dose of vaccine to people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems at its vaccination locations (except the Ana Lark Center).

Many pharmacies and clinics are providing the THIRD dose. Visit vaccines.gov for a location near you.

Even though the APH online portal will allow anyone who needs a third dose to make an appointment, if you do not meet the eligibility criteria when you arrive at the vaccination site, you will be turned away. 

Those currently eligible to receive a third dose of an mRNA vaccine (either the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine) must be at least 28 days after receiving their second dose and meet at least one of the criteria below:

  • Be receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Have received an organ transplant and be taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Have received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or be taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Have moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Have advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Be in active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

According to the CDC, moderately to severely immunocompromised people, who make up about 3% of the adult population in the United States, are more at risk of serious, prolonged disease and may benefit from an additional dose to ensure they have enough protection against COVID-19.

To protect this eligible population of immunocompromised along with our loved ones and community, APH is asking everyone who is still unvaccinated to get the shot.

If you have questions about your eligibility for a third dose, talk with your healthcare provider.
