For homebound residents, the effort and stress involved in getting a COVID-19 vaccine can be overwhelming. The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) reminds all Texans that are permanently or temporarily homebound can call (844) 90-TEXAS ((844) 908-3927), and by selecting Option 1 can request a State Mobile Vaccination Team to visit their home.
Organizations and businesses that would like to schedule a vaccination event can call the hotline and select Option 3. TDEM requests the event have at least 10 employees, visitors or members who voluntarily choose to be vaccinated.
"Vaccines are the most effective tool in Texas' fight against COVID-19, and we are committed to making COVID-19 vaccines even more widely available to Texans across the state," said Governor Abbott. "The State Vaccine Call Center will help connect businesses and civic organizations with these life-saving shots and ensure that more Texans have an opportunity to get vaccinated. I urge organizations and businesses to call (844) 90-TEXAS and schedule a visit from a State Mobile Vaccination Team. Here in Texas, COVID-19 vaccines will always be strongly encouraged and always voluntary."
Since the program's initial launch in January, the State Mobile Vaccine Teams worked to meet various COVID-19 vaccination needs of underserved communities across the state. These teams are made up of members of the Texas National Guard and coordinated by TDEM.
