COVID-19 VaccineVaccination Guidance During a Pandemic Ensuring the Safety of COVID-19 Vaccines in the United States

The goals of the DSHS Immunization Unit are to eliminate the spread of vaccine preventable diseases by increasing vaccine coverage for Texans, raise awareness of the diseases that vaccines prevent, and educate the public about vaccine safety. We do this through administration of the Texas Immunization Registry (ImmTrac2), which provides access to immunization records, establishment of school immunization rules, and administration of the Texas Vaccines for Children and Adult Safety Net programs, which provide low-cost vaccines to eligible children and adults.
