The Texarkana-Bowie County Family Health Center has successfully vaccinated 600 individuals that fall into Phase 1A and 1B of the state's COVID-19 vaccination plan.  Individuals MUST have an appointment to receive a vaccination. If you have called and put your name on the waiting list, you will be contacted when there is a vaccination for you. We have suspended taking names at this time, as the list has far surpassed our allocation, but we will continue to vaccinate as more allocations are received.

The goal of the local, state and national public health response is to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  The overall risk of COVID-19 in the United States to the general public is serious.  To help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including flu and COVID-19, follow these measures:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. 
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 
  • Stay home when you are sick. 
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue to cover it, then throw the tissue in the trash. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.  

The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation.
