State Mobile Vaccine Program

Governor Greg Abbott, the Texas Division of Emergency Management, and the Texas Military Department recently announced the expansion of the State Mobile Vaccine Program to include groups of five or more Texans who voluntarily choose to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Texans can call 844-90-TEXAS and select Option 3 to schedule a mobile vaccine clinic to vaccinate groups of friends, families, employees, volunteers, and more. Homebound Texans are also encouraged to call the hotline and select Option 1 to request a state mobile vaccination team to visit their home. The call center is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

COVID-19 Testing Info Graphic
WEBSITE COVID-19 Testing bilingual June Update

The testing is provided at no cost to the individual and is available to anyone, whether or not they reside in Hays County. Curative is now billing private insurance companies for testing services, but there will be no out-of-pocket cost to the individual being tested. Those without insurance will not be turned away and will receive the test for free.

Over 10,000 tests have been administered at the San Marcos Curative test site since testing began in October 2020. These numbers do not include testing done at Texas State University and do include individuals who do not reside in Hays County.
