Austin Public Health offers free COVID-19 vaccines to all eligible populations.

Vaccines are administered by appointment only. Call 512-972-5520 to make an appointment.


It’s important, now more than ever, to stay on track with your child’s vaccines. Waiting too long to vaccinate your child can put them at risk for serious infection at an age when they are most vulnerable. If not protected against the illnesses these immunizations can prevent, children can develop life-threatening medical conditions. Vaccines are a safe and proven way to protect our children and communities.

Immunization Services 

By staying up-to-date on immunizations, you have the power to protect your child and family from life-threatening illnesses. Austin Public Health offers immunizations, including COVID-19 and flu vaccines, to children who are uninsured or Medicaid recipients. Services are also available to uninsured adults.
