EDINBURG – Hidalgo County will begin pre-registering homebound residents to receive COVID-19 vaccines in their homes beginning today, April 7, 2021, said Hidalgo County Judge Richard F. Cortez.
Residents interested in signing up for the homebound vaccines may call the Hidalgo County Informational Hotline at (956)292-7765.
Operators at our call center will help residents complete a homebound vaccination pre-screening survey. Eligible residents will then receive a follow-up call from Hidalgo County to finalize appointments.
“We have initiated this registration process to better serve homebound vaccine seekers and to speed up the vaccination process for our residents so that they are better protected from the virus,” said Judge Cortez.
Once a resident is found eligible and an appointment is made, members of the Texas Military Department in coordination with the Texas Division of Emergency Management will go to the person’s home and administer the COVID-19 vaccine. Eligibility includes anyone over age 65 and anyone with disabilities that prevent them from leaving the home or those who do not have transportation.
