St. Joseph Health and the Brazos County Community Vaccination Hub will completely end hub operations as of Thursday, June 3, 2021, for all doses.
Individuals who are interested in getting vaccinated after Thursday, June 3, 2021, have several options:
- If you are a St. Joseph Medical Group patient, contact your primary care physician’s office to set up an appointment for the vaccine at their clinic.
- If you are not a St. Joseph Medical Group patient but would like to receive the vaccine at one of our St. Joseph and Texas A&M Health Network primary care locations, you can establish care with a primary care provider by calling 979-774-2121.
- If you are not a patient and already have a primary care provider, we recommend you contact your physician directly.
- Finally, there are a number of pharmacies across the Brazos Valley that offer the vaccine. A full list can be found by visiting the Brazos County Health District’s website. These include:
If you have additional questions about your second dose appointment, please call 979-703-1545.
Why Is the Hub Ending Operations?
While the hub has been an important operation in getting Brazos Valley residents vaccinated over the last couple of months, it was never intended to operate long term. With many access points now available for getting the vaccine, it is clear that the hub is no longer necessary to push out large quantities of the vaccine each week.
We continue to encourage everyone who is eligible to receive the vaccine so that we can reach herd immunity for our community. We are grateful for the many partners and volunteers who supported the vaccine hub effort. We could not have administered over 90,000 doses without their support.
Pediatric Vaccination Options
According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, everyone age 12 and older is now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Texas. For more information on scheduling a vaccine for your child, call their St. Joseph and Texas A&M Health Network pediatrician.
