On Wednesday, January 27, Galveston County officials, in partnership with UTMB Health and the Galveston County Health District, announced the creation of a COVID-19 vaccination portal and phone line to schedule all future vaccination appointments in the county.
Only those in Phase 1A and 1B are asked to sign up at this time using the portal and phone number information listed below.
You do not have to be a resident of Galveston County or a UTMB patient to sign up for the waitlist. Priority will be given to people registered based on age to get vaccinated. An evaluation based on someone’s health conditions will be the next criteria.
Once someone creates an account using the online portal or phone number, they will receive a confirmation email letting them know their information is in the waitlist.
Once that person is eligible to receive the vaccine based on his or her level of risk, they will receive an email alerting them to schedule an appointment.
Within the notification, there will be a link to a website where they can schedule an appointment. The scheduling link will only be valid for 24 hours.
