News . COVID-19 Updates

For the week of March 1, Texas' Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has announced that Collin County's vaccine providers will receive 33,100 vaccine doses (an increase of 15,000 from February 22). This increase in vaccine doses is welcome news and it helps eliminate the vaccine deficit that Collin County was experiencing earlier in the month.

I am grateful for the increase in vaccine doses to Collin County, and I sincerely appreciate the efforts of our County Commissioners, our legislative delegation, and DSHS officials for helping us continue to serve our Collin County families.

Collin County Health Care Services and our vaccine partners have done a truly fantastic job providing first and second dose shots to our community! Together, these providers are now administering vaccine doses to individuals on the Vaccine Wait List with registration numbers up to #114887. If you have a vaccine wait list number equal to or lower than #114887, you should expect to hear from a vaccine provider by March 5 to confirm your appointment. We appreciate your patience this week as our vaccine partners endeavor to contact everyone ahead of you on the wait list.

As we continue to respond to COVID-19, I make these two commitments to you and your family.

  • If you choose to take the COVID-19 vaccine, I respect and honor your personal decision and our team at Collin County will work diligently to make the vaccine available to you as quickly as possible with excellence, efficiency, and professionalism.
  • If you choose not to take the COVID-19 vaccine, I respect and honor your personal decision and I will fight to protect your right to choose and to ensure that the vaccine is #AlwaysVoluntary.
