As of 4/27/2021, over 41,000 doses of vaccine have been administered in Parker County.


***The County has diligently been working with surrounding counties, as well as State and Federal agencies to deliver vaccines.  See updated information below which we will continue to provide as new information becomes available.*** 

 

The Parker County Hospital District has been designated as a Vaccine Hub by the Texas Department of State Health Services. Read the following for information on how to obtain a vaccination. 

 

The Hospital District has an online scheduling system which will allow you to schedule a date, time and place to receive your vaccination.

 

     The quickest way to receive a vaccination is to visit the Hospital District website at www.pchdtx.org. On this site you can sign up for a date, time and place to receive your vaccination. All vaccinations are given by appointment only.   Blocks of appointments are released on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8:00AM.

 

      If you do not have access to the internet or have repeated difficulty in attempting to schedule an appointment online please call the Hospital District’s COVID Vaccine Hotline at 817-402-1118 and a Hospital District employee will assist you in scheduling an appointment. This phone line will not accept voicemails. 

 

SECOND DOSES: For those who have already received their first vaccine dose, you will be receiving your second dose at the same time and place that you received your first dose. If you were given an appointment time and location, please keep that appointment.

 

Any resident in Texas may get their vaccine in any county in Texas.  However, if you sign up in multiple counties, and you get your vaccine, please contact all the other places that you have signed up and cancel those appointments.

Q. Why can’t the Hospital District schedule appointments further out? There is a very limited supply of vaccines. The vaccines are allocated by the Department of State Health Services to the Hospital District on a weekly basis. The amount of vaccines may vary from week to week and we do not want to make an appointment for someone if we cannot provide a vaccine.

Q. What about my second shot?  You will need a second shot of the same brand of vaccine. As we are giving the Pfizer brand, the second shot should be 21 days later. When you receive your first dose, you will be given an appointment for your second dose. You will receive a confirmation email and a reminder email for the second appointment.

 

Q. I got my first shot from another provider. Can I get my second shot from you? All sites are given equal numbers of first and second doses. Therefore, you will need to return to the site you were given your first dose. We do not have extra second doses to use.

 

Q. What if I made an appointment and need to change it?  When you make an appointment, you will receive a confirmation email. In this email are instructions for how to change or cancel your appointment.
