COVID-19 Vaccine in Rockwall County

Welcome! If you are looking for a COVID-19 vaccine, you have come to the right place. To receive the 1st dose of vaccine, to determine when your 2nd dose is being administered or to find an alternate day to receive your 2nd dose, please see the vaccine calendar below. This calendar displays all 1st and 2nd dose vaccine clinics. If future 1st dose vax clinic appointments are available, click here to book an appointment.

2nd dose appointments and rescheduled appointments were sent to you via text from 80578. If you did not receive a rescheduled appointment text from 80578 please look at the calendar below. Find the clinic that matches with your first dose and show up at Wilkerson Memorial Stadium on that day from 9:00 - 2:30.

If you are busy and can't make your 2nd dose appointment, look at the calendar below to determine the next 2nd dose clinic of the same vaccine type. The new CDC guidelines allow a maximum 42 day period from receipt of the first dose to the second dose (https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/info-by-product/clinical-considerations.html).

Almost every vax clinic has "extra" doses at the end of the day due to no-shows. Vax clinics accept walk-ups 1½ hours before the end of the operation. This is typically 1 pm, but please see the calendar for exact operational times for each event. Walk-ups will have to register on site. Please do not attempt to obtain a walk-up appointment earlier than 1 ½ hours before the end of the operation. You will be asked to come back later in the day.

You may also join the Rockwall County Nixle vaccine alerts to be notified of 1st and 2nd dose vaccine opportunities. These alerts will notify you of available 1st dose appointments and "extra" doses at the end of a vax clinic due to no-shows. To receive these vaccine text notifications, text the keyword "vaxrockwall" to 888777.

One other option to find a 1st or 2nd dose vaccine is to contact other vaccine sites in the area. A list of other operations can be found here: https://dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/immunize/vaccine-hubs.aspx#hublist

Due to the nature of mass vaccinations, we cannot reschedule appointments. The amount of manpower it requires to hold a mass vaccination event requires staff to dispense all vaccines the day of the event. Please utilize the resources above to find a solution.

All of the information regarding vaccines in Rockwall County can be found on this webpage. If you continue to have questions or need assistance, please email emergencymanagement@rockwallcountytexas.com.

REGISTER FOR V-SAFE

Remember most COVID-19 vaccines will require a second dose. Be aware of your vaccine provider's process for getting your second dose. It takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines that require 2 shots may not protect you until a week or two after your second shot. It is important for all community members to continue using all of the tools available help stop the spread of COVID-19. Continue to cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others, stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live in your household, avoid crowds, and wash your hands often.

Volunteering to assist with vaccinations:

Rockwall County Office of Emergency Management continues to look for volunteers to assist with Covid-19 mass vaccination operations. At this time, we are looking to determine volunteers' availability. This is not a deployment request or a commitment to assist on any specific date or time. If a volunteer's availability changes, they can go back to this form and edit availability. 

Rockwall County will provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to any volunteer who assists, and social distancing will be in place during mass vaccination operations. The safety of our volunteers is of the utmost importance. There is something for everyone if you want to assist Rockwall County to get past COVID-19. Some of the positions include:

  • Vaccinators (Licensed Medical Professionals permitted to administer vaccinations)
  • Observers (able to observe people for up to 30 minutes after receiving vaccinations)
