Looking for a COVID-19 vaccine in Plano? Here’s the latest from health officials



PLANO, TX – Collin County is awaiting further shipments of COVID-19 vaccine after administering more than 1,000 doses last week, according to the county’s health department.

The county is advising residents who meet the criteria to be vaccinated in these early rounds of the state’s vaccination campaign to check the health department’s website for updates, including a link to an online registration page that will go up after the county receives more doses.

On social media, the city of Plano said that it is not “a public vaccination location,” but directed residents to check the state health department’s website to find vaccine distribution sites in the county. Vaccines are being given directly to health care providers and pharmacies.

The city said it would share additional information and updates from the state online as the vaccination campaign ramps up.

Texas’ bumpy rollout of COVID-19 vaccines began last month and has been dogged by logistical issues and confusion. The first vaccines have been allocated for frontline health care workers, residents of long-term care facilities, people who are 65 years of age and older and people with certain chronic medical conditions.

Residents who meet any of these criteria — falling in what the state has called groups 1A and 1B — can register with Collin County to be vaccinated as soon as more vaccines are available, according to the health department, or use the state’s website to find a vaccine provider near them.
