Eligibility and Benefits for the Public - Adult Safety Net Program

Eligibility Requirements

Anyone who is 19 years of age or older and does not have health insurance is eligible to receive low-cost vaccines under the Adult Safety Net program.

For persons younger than 19 years of age, please refer to the Texas Vaccines for Children program, which provides vaccines to children 0-18 years of age.
