Priority will be given to health care workers, seniors (65+), and individuals who are at high risk of contracting the coronavirus or have one or more chronic health conditions. No walk-ins will be accepted.
What do I do after I am given a time slot for a vaccine?
If you have access to the Internet and a printer, you can print and fill out the registration forms prior to arrival at the Expo (Washington County fairgrounds). If you do not have this access, you will complete the forms upon arriving for your appointment. Forms can be found at www.localevent.into

Vaccination SubHUB Coming to the Area
Earlier this week Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced a new state strategy for distributing COVID-19 vaccines. Senator Kolkhorst played a key role in securing this site for the region. The plan focuses on new vaccine "HUBS" and “subHUB” that are intended to help distribute the vaccine faster. As of today, Washington County Expo Center (Fairgrounds) has become one of the rural county vaccination subHUB. The subHUB will be supported by Austin County, Burleson County, Fayette County, Grimes County, Washington County, City of Brenham, Baylor Scott & White, Blinn College, Texas Agricultural Extension Service, Brenham Independent School District, and Faith Mission.
The subHUB will operate similar to what residents have seen with the drive-thru testing sites that have been held at the fairgrounds. Registration and ID are required. No walk-ins will be accepted. Any Texas resident can register, although priority will be given to health care workers, the elderly (65+), and individuals who are at high risk of contracting the coronavirus or have one or more chronic health conditions.
The vaccination subHUB will begin Tuesday, January 19, 2021 and run from 6 AM to 6 PM. Those that qualify can begin registering on Monday, January 18, 2021 at 1-800-845-8035.
Because of vaccine tracking purposes, you are required to receive the first and second dose of the vaccine from the same location. If you have already received your first vaccine, you must return to that same location for your second dose. For instance, if you received your first dose from HEB, you will not be allowed to register and receive your second dose from the subHUB.
