The Galveston County Health District Is offering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine—one of two available coronavirus vaccines—to county residents, including in League City, who meet certain criteria.

Vaccines will go to those included under Phase 1A and 1B of the Texas Vaccination Plan.

Phase 1A includes health care workers. The first tier includes workers in hospital settings who are positive or high risk for COVID-19 and EMS providers, among others. The second tier includes outpatient care staff who interact with symptomatic patients, among other individuals, according to the release.

Phase 1B includes those age 65 and older and adults with at least one chronic medical condition, including cancer, kidney disease, pregnancy and other conditions, that puts them at increased risk for severe illness, according to the release.

The county has already distributed a limited number of vaccines and is awaiting a second shipment of the vaccine, according to a League City news release. Visit www.gchd.org/covidvaccine to see availability.


Residents who want to be vaccinated can check with their doctors or visit the Texas COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Locations map. Not all locations are vaccinating the public, the release reads.

When they go to a vaccine appointment, residents should bring the required Moderna vaccine forms, per the release.
