Austin Public Health recenters vaccine efforts

Monday, February 28, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

Austin Public Health has announced its intention to shift Covid-19 vaccine operations “to a focused outreach approach” and away from mass vaccine operations. The shift, which comes as the region falls back to Stage 4 guidelines, will allow the health authority to return to work more central to its mission. APH’s mobile vaccination program will distribute Covid-19 vaccines in hard-to-reach areas through mobile pop-ups driven by request from businesses, churches and other community organizations. APH held its last vaccine clinics at Delco Activity Center and Southeast Branch library over the weekend. Sites at Old Sims Elementary and Pfluger Hall will continue to remain open. No appointment, insurance or proof of residency is required and APH continues to offer testing. Find more information about testing and vaccine distribution by calling 311 or visiting the city’s website, or reach out to the state by calling 211 or visiting 211texas.org.
