The Galveston County Health District has COVID-19 vaccine appointment openings for this weekend at League City's Walter Hall Park.

The appointment slots opened up around 7 p.m. March 18. As of the morning of March 19, half-hour slots were still available March 21 from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.



The appointments are for the first dose of the Moderna vaccine, which is a two-shot process. They are open only to those in Phase 1, which includes:




  • Phase 1A, or health care workers;

  • Phase 1B, including those 65 and older as well as those 18 and older with at least one chronic medical condition that qualifies them as high-risk; and

  • Phase 1C, or those age 50 and older.



Click here to schedule your appointment; once there are no slots left, no appointment times will appear on the site.

Registration involves a brief information-gathering process and the completion of a wellness checklist. Those who register will need to print out or take a screenshot of the QR code to present at the time of their appointment.
