"Our kids who cannot get vaccinated, they depend on us being vaccinated to protect them from the spread of the virus. We are their shields," US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy said. "Even if you don't want to do it for yourself, consider getting vaccinated to protect the children in your community. They are depending on us."
All Texans 12 years and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. There are providers in Angelina, Polk and San Augustine counties that have the ability to store and distribute the COVID-19 vaccine.
Pediatricians recommend you vaccinate your children for COVID-19. The vaccines are safe and effective, and they are the best chance our kids have at a school year without interruptions, remote learning or masks. You’re not considered fully vaccinated until two weeks after your second dose, so start making back-to-school vaccine plans now. Let's make last year the last year our kids have to deal with COVID.
The Deep East Texas Partnership is now vaccinating registered adults 18+. For information about individuals under the age of 18, please call (936) 630-8500.
It will take time for Texas’ vaccine supply to meet the demand, so we are not guaranteed a set number of doses or access to a particular vaccine.

Please do not call Angelina County & Cities Health District's main number for COVID-19 testing or vaccination information as we are assisting other community members with direct healthcare services.
