CHRISTUS COVID-19 Resources

As your healthcare partner, CHRISTUS Health wants to assure you that we are fully equipped to provide safe, quality care to our community.

Today is the beginning of your health for tomorrow!

Good News!

Starting the week of January 4th, a select few CHRISTUS clinics began accepting appointments to vaccinate Phase 1B recipients. As our hospitals continue to care for patients with COVID and other medical needs, we will be offering these vaccinations through our clinics, as they are better prepared to provide this type of care to large groups of the public.

Please note, an online appointment is required to receive the vaccine. CHRISTUS clinics and urgent cares are not scheduling any appointments via phone or in-person. All appointment requests for the vaccine will need to follow the process below:

Step 1: To see if you are eligible to receive the vaccine, click the yellow chat icon to your right to connect you with Christy, our virtual assistant.
Step 2: Christy, our virtual assistant, will ask you a few screening questions to ensure you are eligible for the vaccine.
Step 3: If you qualify for the vaccine, Christy will help you find an appointment at the nearest available CHRISTUS clinic or urgent care. If registration is full, check back daily as slots become available.
Step 4: Complete your registration by filling out all patient information online and confirming your appointment date, time and clinic location.

If you have questions about your personal health concerns or history and how that might be impacted by vaccination, we encourage you to talk with your primary care provider, who knows your conditions and your history and can advise you personally. If you do not have a primary care provider, you can find one here.

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, so we have answered some of your most frequently asked ones. 

COVID-19 Safety

The safety of our patients, Associates and physicians is our top priority. That’s why we successfully practice infection prevention every day. To keep all who enter our facilities safe during COVID-19 we have added the following precautions:

  • Limiting visitors
  • Screening everyone who comes through our doors
  • Random temperature checks for Associates
  • Requiring everyone on our campuses to wear masks
  • Using virtual care to treat active COVID-19 patients, so their caregivers and support staff limit the number of times they enter their rooms

We’re in this Together

This may be an unprecedented time, but we have experienced many of these since CHRISTUS was founded 154 years ago. In fact, the first three Sisters who started our ministry in Galveston faced an epidemic of Yellow Fever within the first six months of opening the very first hospital.

Epidemics and tragedies have been part of our history, and so too has the resolve, after each of those challenges, to move on in love and service to those in need. We stand today in a rich history that gives us confidence that, with God’s help, we can do the same.

We are answering the call to help our community – today and tomorrow. In all that we do, we are devoted to keeping you, your families, our caregivers and our Associates safe. And we are here when you need care. We are ready.
