Schedule your vaccine
Please review the following information before you schedule your appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine at MD Anderson. Be aware this scheduling application is for 1st dose appointments only. For questions about scheduling vaccine appointments or about the vaccine process at MD Anderson, please call 832-750-7890.
- The vaccination location will be at an MD Anderson Cancer Center building. Free parking is available. You will receive detailed directions once you schedule a vaccination appointment. Do not arrive at the vaccine location without a confirmed appointment date and time.
- After choosing your appointment time, be sure to complete the form information and scroll down to click the green "Schedule It" button.
- The COVID-19 vaccine you receive depends on the supply provided by the state.
- If the COVID-19 vaccine you receive requires 2 doses, you should try to receive both doses of the vaccine at MD Anderson. The second dose is administered a minimum of 21 (Pfizer) or 28 (Moderna) days after the first dose. You will receive confirmation for your Dose 2 appointment after you receive Dose 1. Receiving both doses of the same vaccine within the recommended time frame is the best approach to achieve the greatest benefit from the two-dose vaccines.
- All vaccinations are free. Bring your insurance information cards (including your red, white and blue Medicare card, if applicable), along with a photo ID. Your insurance may be billed for the COVID-19 vaccine administration fee. Your insurance carrier should process the vaccine administration charge without applying any out-of-pocket costs to you. Insurance is not required to schedule an appointment. For those without insurance, the vaccine administration fee will be waived. Those under age 18 will be asked if their parent, guardian or a responsible party has insurance. If so, they will be asked to provide a form of identification and insurance card. For minors without insurance, the administration fee will be waived.
- Public transportation (METRO / METRORail) may be available nearby.
