Why not get vaccinated today?
Wednesday, August 18, 2021 by Tai Moses
With Austin and Travis County in stage 5 – the most severe stage – of the Covid-19 risk-based guidelines, health officials are urging unvaccinated people to get the vaccine without further delay. Austin Public Health, Travis County and their community partners are providing multiple opportunities this week for people to do just that. If you need the vaccine, visit the Travis County Covid-19 page and click on the button that says “Get Vaccinated.” The calendar displays dozens of vaccine events around the county and is frequently being updated with new events, dates and times. Below the calendar, the “Find a Covid-19 Vaccine Near You” button takes you to the vaccine locations map. No appointments are necessary. Please note that kids aged 12-17 must have a parent or guardian present and that the Pfizer vaccine is the only one authorized for that age group.
