COVID-19 Vaccine Update

Texoma Medical Center has enrolled as a provider in the U.S. Federal Vaccination Program, which designates us as a distribution point for the new COVID-19 vaccine. We have been working with the Grayson County Health Department to administer our supply of the COVID-19 vaccine to all eligible individuals as defined by the Texas Department of State Health Services.

It is recommended that you first try to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine from your primary care physician, or through your retail pharmacy, if they have the vaccine available.

The Grayson County Health Department is currently offering walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics on Tuesdays. Please visit their website to learn more.

Emergency Department – Do Not Delay in Seeking Critical Care

Our Emergency DepartmentER at Sherman and ER at Anna are staffed 24/7 to serve those with emergency medical conditions. Individuals experiencing serious injuries or medical symptoms such as chest pain, numbness, difficulty breathing or mental confusion should call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency department. It could save your life.

Our rooms are private and we utilize UV light technology that kills germs once a room is unoccupied. Curtains and doors are kept closed and patients are separated based on symptoms.

Individuals Experiencing COVID-19 Symptoms

If you develop a fever or cough or have difficulty breathing, or have had close contact with someone who has had a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result, please seek medical attention by calling your provider’s office or an Urgent Care Center.
