Vaccine information for non CommUnityCare Health Centers patients
If you are not a CommUnityCare patient and are looking for information on where to get a vaccine, our partners at UT Dell Med and Austin Public Health have websites where you can sign up and register for a COVID vaccine. We understand this is a challenging process, but are hopeful that as more vaccines become available, the registration and vaccine process will become more accessible.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe. The U.S. vaccine safety system ensures that all vaccines are safe. All approved COVID-19 vaccines go through testing and clinical trials before they are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for distribution.
The vaccine cannot give you COVID-19. The vaccine does not include the live virus that causes COVID-19. Sometimes the vaccine can cause mild symptoms like pain where you get the shot, fever, chills, headaches or make you feel tired. These symptoms are normal and are a sign that your body is building immunity.
Everyone needs the vaccine – even if you’ve had COVID-19. The best way to stop the pandemic is to take every precaution including getting a vaccine, wearing a mask, washing your hands often, and keeping at least six feet apart from others. When it’s your turn, get the vaccine.
How does the vaccine work? A vaccine prepares your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus in case you are exposed. Depending on the vaccine you receive, a second dose is required in 2 - 3 weeks. You will receive a reminder to schedule a second vaccine the same way you received your confirmation about the first dose.
Even when you get the vaccine, keep wearing a mask. Once you get the vaccine, keep wearing a mask, washing your hands, and watching your distance. The vaccine can keep you from getting sick, but you could still get infected with coronavirus. And if you’re infected, you can spread COVID-19 to others.
Vaccine supplies are limited. Be patient. There aren’t enough vaccines for everyone right now, but more vaccines are coming. Based on guidelines from the State of Texas, frontline health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities are getting the vaccine first. The next group to get vaccinated are people 65 and older and people 16 and over with medical conditions that can put them at risk of complications from COVID-19. This includes pregnant women. All adults should be able to get vaccinated later in 2021.
Vaccines for CommUnityCare patients: We are following State and Federal vaccine guidelines to vaccinate people. Based on these guidelines, we will notify established CommUnityCare patients when its your turn to get the vaccine.
Vaccines for vulnerable populations who are not our patients: Austin Public Health is currently focusing on vaccinating vulnerable communities. To find out if you are eligible for a vaccine and pre- register, visit AustinTexas.gov/covid19-vaccines. Completing pre-registration does not guarantee that you will receive the vaccine or be guaranteed a scheduled appointment.
