WAITLIST REGISTRATION OPENS FOR THOSE 18 YEARS AND OLDER

Victoria City and County officials announced today that all individuals 18 and older can begin registering online for the COVID-19 vaccination waitlist to be vaccinated as early as Thursday, April 1, per new DSHS guidelines.

Residents can register to be placed on the COVID-19 vaccination waitlist at www.victoriawaitlist.com, or by contacting the hotline at 888-966-5640 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday - Friday.

Individuals will be selected at random to receive a vaccine and will be called or emailed a single-use link with instructions about how to setup a time to get vaccinated at the Victoria Community Center. Individuals contacted will have 48 hours to complete the clinic appointment registration before the opportunity is offered to someone else. If the selected person doesn’t complete registration, they will be put back on the waitlist.

Prior to the Tuesday clinic, the Victoria mass vaccination hub has performed approximately 16,801 first dose vaccinations and 6,408 2nd doses. Over 6,400 people have now been fully vaccinated through the Victoria hub.

Victoria City/County officials, including the mayor pro-tem and judge, emergency response officials and area hospitals, continue to work together to meet the needs of the community, inform the community about state vaccine allocations and provide logistical support to Victoria’s area health care facilities.

The following organizations have worked to organize the vaccination clinic:
• Victoria County Public Health Department
• Victoria City/County Office of Emergency Management
• City of Victoria
• Victoria County
• Citizens Medical Center
• DeTar Healthcare System
• Post Acute Medical
