A reverse alert will be sent to those individuals with an appointment time and password tomorrow, Monday, February 8 with instructions for the clinic on Tuesday.

First Dose Pre-Registration Processes using Online Form or Call Center Hotline:

  • Those who register online or using the hotline will be notified by reverse alert with an appointment time slot for vaccination. Patrons will need to arrive one hour prior to their appointment time.  This information will be given on the reverse alert.
  • These participants will be given a password that needs to be written down on a piece of paper and placed on your vehicle’s dashboard for staff to see and read easily.
  • Patrons that registered on-line will receive a QR code which they will need to bring to the clinic.  Patrons that registered via the call center hotline will not receive a QR code.
  • If there is an issue with the QR code, please call the Health District at 361-826-7200, option 2.

Second Dose Clinics:

Regarding the second dose clinics expected to be scheduled for this week as soon as vaccines arrive from the state, if you received your first dose vaccine on January 11, 12, 15, or 16 at the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds, it is time for your second dose. Remember the date of second dose does not have to be on the exact 28th day date. The second dose vaccine can be administered as early as 24 days after the first dose and as late as six weeks after receiving the first dose.

We will keep the community informed about the second dose clinics anticipated this week for the up to 9,000 patrons once the Health District receives confirmation for the State of the arrival of the second dose vaccines.
