BRAZORIA COUNTY COVID-19 VACCINE INFORMATION

Per the Texas Department of State Health Services, as of Wednesday, May 12, 2021, everyone 12 years old and older is now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Texas. With cases in our area increasing due to the Delta variant, the COVID-19 vaccine adds one more layer of protection for our students, staff, faculty, and community and helps give us the best chance of getting “back to normal” and staying that way. Local COVID-19 vaccine appointment information can be found at www.brazosport.edu/coronavirus/vaccine/.

Please note, for the Pfizer vaccine, recipients must be 12 years of age or older. For the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, recipients must be 18 years of age or older.
