UT Southwestern Medical Center Vaccinations
As a state-designated COVID-19 vaccination hub, UT Southwestern is pleased to announce that they are partnering with Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) to reach those members of our community who are at highest risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and vaccinate them.
DCHHS is providing UTSW with names of qualified individuals (Phases 1A and 1B) who registered with the county for vaccination. UT Southwestern Medical Center will reach out to those individuals to provide a registration code to set up a MyChart account, UTSW’s secure, online health management tool that allows you to make appointments. Once that account is established, those individuals will be eligible to schedule for available appointments at UTSW sites through MyChart. Instructions for receiving the vaccination also will be sent through MyChart.
Please check back for frequent updates, which will be posted to the UTSW COVID-19 Vaccination webpage.
UT Southwestern started offering COVID-19 vaccines to eligible patients, based on state guidelines, on Monday, Jan. 4. Currently, existing UTSW patients who are 65 or older or 16+ who have at least one specified medical condition that puts them at high risk of severe COVID-19 complications are eligible. Existing patients will be notified through their MyChart account when they become eligible, with a message that includes a link and instructions for making an appointment. An appointment must be made to receive the vaccine.
