APH for offering doses to local suppliers & amp; manages shot at clinics

AUSTIN, Texas – Austin Public Health (APH) is expanding Covid-19 vaccine quality after federal authorization. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now recommends that all children from 6 months to 5 years receive a COVID-19 vaccine. This age group is eligible to receive Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines.

Updated recommendations include:

“This vaccine expansion comes at a critical time when we are dealing with new sub-variants and high community transmission,” said Dr. Desmar Walkes, Austin-Travis County Health Authority. “These vaccines will help protect your children from severe COVID-19 symptoms and allow them to be hospitalized.”

Special training is required to manage shots for infants and young children. The APH’s highly trained staff is ready to provide vaccinations at Shots for Tots clinics and through the Mobile Vaccination Program (MVP). Historically, most people in Travis County receive vaccinations at pharmacies or doctor’s offices, but the APH continues to make efforts to fill in the gaps by serving dangerous and underserved populations in its clinics and through community exchanges. APH, which recently received exemplary provider status for immunization and testing services from the Compliance Team, has administered nearly 394,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine since December 2020.

Parents with children under the age of 5 can skip the online appointment process and apply for their vaccination at APH’s COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Old Sims Elementary (1203 Springdale Rd., Austin, TX 78721).

More than 74% of the previously eligible population of Travis County (age 5+) are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The same population is also eligible for a booster dose. The CDC recommends an additional booster for adults 50 and older.

“The expanded availability is another milestone in building the resilience and protection of our community against COVID-19,” said APH Director Adrienne Sturrup. “Families with infants can visit their doctor’s office or APH to get vaccinated and stay up to date on boosters. Vaccines in our clinics are free and do not require identification, insurance or proof of citizenship.

Wearing a well-fitting mask offers protection for yourself and those around you. Free N95 breathalyzers are available at some local pharmacies. Use a feature on the CDC website to find a place near you.

APH encourages testing before and after meetings, especially if you plan to be in close contact with individuals who are at risk. A third round of free mail order COVID-19 test kits is available through the federal government. You can also pick up free Rapid Antigen testing at APH’s Metz Elementary Testing Site (84 Robert T. Martinez Jr. St., Austin, TX 78702).

Testing and vaccination information

Find vaccination providers using Vaccines.gov (Vacunas.gov in Spanish) or by texting your zip code at 438829 (822862 in Spanish) to find a nearby clinic.

APH clinics offer COVID-19 testing and vaccinations without an appointment, though an account online saves in advance. COVID-19 vaccines are free of charge and do not require identification or insurance. For more information and to schedule an appointment, call 3-1-1 or 512-974-2000 or visit www.AustinTexas.gov/COVID19.
