Austin Public Health announces changes to COVID-19 vaccine operations

Austin Public Health (APH) is shifting COVID-19 vaccine operations to a focused outreach approach. This decision comes after Austin-Travis County is returning to Stage 4 of its COVID-19 risk-based guidelines.

The last APH vaccine clinic at Delco Activity Center is Friday, Feb. 25, and the last clinic at the Southeast Branch library is Saturday, Feb. 26. The vaccine clinics at Old Sims Elementary and Pfluger Hall remain open with their existing schedules.

APH says instead, its teams will focus on the Mobile Vaccination Program (MVP), which offers COVID-19 vaccines at locations in otherwise hard-to-reach areas. Businesses, churches and other community groups can request MVP services through an online form

All APH vaccine clinics offer all three vaccines and their booster doses, no appointment, proof of residency or insurance is required.
