H-E-B launched their COVID-19 vaccine registration website Wednesday, and opened up appointments to groups 1A and 1B. Group 1A includes healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities. Group 1B includes folks 65 years and older as well as anyone 18 years and older with chronic medical conditions.
Roughly 300 H-E-B locations across Texas are set up to administer vaccines, ranging from Big Spring to Rio Grande City. Here’s how to find an H-E-B vaccine appointment near you.
How do you make a H-E-B COVID-19 vaccine appointment?
To make an appointment, visit https://vaccine.heb.com/ or call 1-800-811-8620. Phone calls will be received from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in English and Spanish.

When using the website, you’ll first select which group you belong to, either 1A or 1B. This will lead you to a portal with a list of vaccine locations. After finding a nearby location with available appointment slots, you will select a date and time for the appointment. This will be followed by entering personal information, such as your name, date of birth, phone number, email address and insurance. Insurance is not necessary to schedule the appointment since the vaccine is free.
Walk-ins will not be accepted.
When is appointment availability updated on the H-E-B COVID-19 vaccine registration website?
Appointments will be made available on the website as pharmacies receive vaccines. There is no set time when appointment times will be updated. If you cannot find availability near you, check back with the website later.
What do I need to bring to my H-E-B COVID-19 vaccination appointment?
For the first dose of the vaccine, folks will need to bring a photo ID. They will also need to bring proof of insurance or, for those without insurance, provide their social security number. For the second dose of the vaccine, people will need to bring these same items plus the shot card they were given when the first dose was administered.
