I’m on the waitlist. How will I get scheduled for my COVID-19 vaccine?

When ATCPHD receives an allocation from the state we start calling individuals on our waitlist, starting at the top. Depending on the phone carrier, it may be listed as unknown, blocked or even spam. It may be a “325” area code. If an individual does not answer, we leave a message stating who we are, why we are calling and a good call back number. Please call back asap as we cannot guarantee vaccine availability.

I’m on the waitlist but haven’t received a phone call yet. Should I call or visit the Health Dept?

No. We call individuals based on where they fall on the waitlist and the number of doses we’re going to receive.

We encourage all citizens to use our new self-scheduling feature to avoid having to wait on a call. Scheduling your own appointment will result in a better user experience than waiting for us to call you. However, we will continue to call people from the waiting list. Visit abilenetx.gov/vaccineinfo for more information, or visit abilenetx.gov/vaccineschedule to make your appointment online

You may also call your primary care provider and local pharmacies to inquire about their vaccine allocations and possible waitlists. 

Can you tell me where I am on the waitlist?

No. We are unable to provide updates regarding where any individual is on the waitlist at this time.
