Can I schedule my own appointment for a Vaccine Clinic?

Yes! Please visit abilenetx.gov/vaccineinfo for more information, or visit abilenetx.gov/vaccineschedule to make your appointment online.

I don’t meet the 1A or 1B criteria for the state of Texas. Can I still schedule an appointment?

No. Only individuals who meet the state criteria can be scheduled at this time.

I’m on the waitlist. How will I get scheduled for my COVID-19 vaccine?

When ATCPHD receives an allocation from the state we start calling individuals on our waitlist, starting at the top. Depending on the phone carrier, it may be listed as unknown, blocked or even spam. It may be a “325” area code. If an individual does not answer, we leave a message stating who we are, why we are calling and a good call back number. Please call back asap as we cannot guarantee vaccine availability.

I’m on the waitlist but haven’t received a phone call yet. Should I call or visit the Health Dept?

No. We call individuals based on where they fall on the waitlist and the number of doses we’re going to receive.

We encourage all citizens to use our new self-scheduling feature to avoid having to wait on a call. Scheduling your own appointment will result in a better user experience than waiting for us to call you. However, we will continue to call people from the waiting list. Visit abilenetx.gov/vaccineinfo for more information, or visit abilenetx.gov/vaccineschedule to make your appointment online

You may also call your primary care provider and local pharmacies to inquire about their vaccine allocations and possible waitlists. 

Can you tell me where I am on the waitlist?

No. We are unable to provide updates regarding where any individual is on the waitlist at this time.

How do I receive my second dose from ATCPHD?

  • If you received your first dose before 2/4/21 from ATCPHD, we will call you directly to schedule your 2nd dose. Please note, depending on your phone carrier the caller may appear to as an unknown caller, blocked or even spam. 
  • If you received your first dose on or after 2/4/21 from ATCPHD, we will write your 2nd dose appointment on your vaccine card.

Watch for COVID-19 Vaccine ScamsThree Ways to Avoid COVID-19 Vaccine Scams

While vaccination details are getting worked out, here's what you can be sure of:

  • You can't pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine. That's a scam.
  • You can't pay to get early access to the vaccine. That's a scam.
  • Nobody legit will call about the vaccine and ask for your Social Security, bank account, or credit card number. That's a scam.

Ignore any vaccine offers that say different, or ask for personal financial information.
