Mobile Vaccination and Disability Service Programs

On July 26, the White House published this comprehensive package of resources for people with disabilities, including people with COVID-related disabilities. We've created a page for these and other resources for people with COVID-related disabilities -- we'll add to it as more resources are available.

If you have a disability and need help getting the vaccine, our Mobile Vaccination Program is here to serve you. The program is provided by Denton County Public Health and Denton County Emergency Service District 1. ESD fire and EMS staff will visit your home to administer the vaccine.

To request this service, register through the Denton County Vaccine Interest Portal or call the hotline at (940) 349-2585.

Texas Mobile Vaccine Program

The state mobile program provides a way for Texas businesses and people who are homebound to schedule free mobile vaccinations.

Texans who are homebound can call tollfree (844) 908-3927 and select Option 1 to request a state mobile vaccination team to come to their home.

Texas businesses, groups, or civic organizations with five or more individuals who voluntarily choose to be vaccinated can call tollfree (844) 908-3927 and select Option 3 to schedule a visit.

The Disability Information and Access Line (DIAL) is available to help people with disabilities, including Deaf persons, get vaccinated. The DIAL’s trained staff is standing by to:

  • Help find local vaccination locations.

  • Assist with making vaccination appointments.

  • Connect callers to local services—such as accessible vaccination transportation

 

The hotline also can provide information and resources to answer questions and address concerns about the vaccines and can connect callers to information and services that promote independent living and address fundamental needs, such as food, housing, and transportation.

The Self Advocacy Resource and Technical Assistance Center’s COVID-19 Vaccine Information in Plain Language includes basic information about the vaccine. Created by and for people with disabilities, the booklet addresses a number of topics, like what a vaccine is, talking to your doctor, and what to do if you think your rights have been violated when trying to get a vaccine.
