Austin Public Health is now offering free COVID-19 vaccines to everyone ages 5 and up. Schedule an appointment for you and your child today at (512) 972-5520.
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 will prevent, children can develop life-threatening medical conditions. Vaccines are a safe and proven way to protect our children and communities.
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, COVID-19 vaccines, and flu shots to children who are uninsured or Medicaid recipients. Services are also available to uninsured adults.
Services are by appointment only. Call (512) 972-5520 Monday through Friday from 8 am to 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm to make an appointment
