Southeast Texas Named a Large HUB Provider for COVID Vaccines

The Southeast Texas Regional Emergency Operations Center has received confirmation from the Texas Department of State Health Services that we are officially a large HUB provider and [will be allowed] 11,000 doses of Jefferson County [and surrounding counties] next week, which will be allotted to our coalition [county] partners based on the percentages outlined in the distribution plan.

 Some important reminders:

  • DO NOT show up to any vaccination sites until you have received a confirmed appointment time from the Public Health Department.  No one will be served without an appointment.
  •  Anyone who previously left their name on the waitlists needs to complete their registration on the following website:
  • You can register at this time, but scheduling will be done at a later time, once vaccinations are available.

If you are unable to access the website, call centers have been established at 409-550-2536 for further assistance. This notification covers citizens in Hardin, Jefferson, Jasper, Newton, and Orange counties. Call center assistance will be available Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm.

Also, please note: 

When registering for the COVID vaccine on the website created by the County, you have the option to select the location where you want to take your vaccine.  The City of Port Arthur Health Department is receiving vaccines as others in the County and have been administering vaccines to citizens from the online registration created first by Port Arthur.  Once these individuals are vaccinated, the health department will begin calling people from the list created by Jefferson County.
