COVID-19 vaccination information, resources

COVID-19 vaccination is now available in Texas, although when and where you can get it varies throughout the state.

All ERS health plans cover COVID-19 vaccination at 100%. That means health plan participants should not have to pay anything out of pocket to be vaccinated against COVID-19, once it is available to them.

Everyone is encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as a vaccine is available to them. For more information on when and where you can get a COVID-19 vaccination, contact your health plan, primary care provider or other health care provider.

Unfortunately, fraud surrounding the vaccine has already begun. Find helpful tips from the Texas Department of Insurance on how to avoid COVID-19 vaccination scams.
