According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services guidelines, teachers, school district employees and childcare workers are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine under the Tier 1B group in Hays County. 
Educators and childcare personnel must sign up on the county’s 1B pre-registration list. Vaccination distribution in the county continues to be by appointment only. Those selected for a vaccine will be notified by phone, text or email. 
Hays County Health Department Director Tammy Crumley says in a press release additional doses of vaccines are expected to arrive at the department. 
“According to DSHS, we will receive 4,680 doses weekly,” Crumley says in the press release. 
Hays County has fully vaccinated 6,965 people and nearly 8,000 people have registered under the county’s 1A list and 43,000 have signed up on the 1B list.
