SEPO & Covid-19 

The below conditions concerning SEPO & Covid-19 will more than likely change depending on many unknown factors in the future. The SEPO board is trying to protect our employees as well as our residents. We all hope we will soon be trending back towards what life was before Covid-19. Thank you for your understanding.

Covid-19 Vaccination Info in the RGV sent via e-mail on Dec 30, 2020.

E-MAIL #1:
Please let those who are currently in residence in Sunshine know that UTRGV has a waiting list for those who wish to receive the vaccine. It is sorted by county, zip code, age, ailment etc.

The electronic form is very brief. Being registered might mean that you would get notified of some excess 1A group serum being available or earlier in the 1B group process. Link below:

E-MAIL #2:

Since some of us here in Sunshine have an interest in receiving the COVID19 vaccine. The following is current information as of Tuesday afternoon (12/29) and it also has Web sites that should remain helpful as long as you are interested in the availability of the shots.

As of now those over 65 are allowed to get the shot, if you can find it.  The details are available on this Texas Department of Health web site:


On the above web site you will also find that the vaccines were distributed as follows:

Week 2 distribution of vaccine in Harlingen was to these locations:

  • AV Rehab, LLC 2902 S. 77 Sunshine Strip Harlingen CAMERON 100

  • Garcia's Pharmacy LLC 101 S Stuart Place Rd Harlingen CAMERON 100

  • HEB Pharmacy 136 1213 S Commerce St Harlingen CAMERON 100

  • HEB Pharmacy 168 1103 Morgan Blvd Harlingen CAMERON 100

  • Heb Pharmacy 291 613 S Exp Hwy 83 Harlingen CAMERON 100

  • Rio Grande State Center 1401 S Rangerville Rd Harlingen CAMERON 600

Week 3 distribution of vaccine in Harlingen was as follows:

  • Harlingen Medical Center 5501 S Expressway 77 Harlingen CAMERON 800

  • Valley Baptist Medical Center 2101 Pease St Harlingen CAMERON 800

All of the above were the Moderna vaccine.  The number to the right of each line is the number of doses provided.

In order to actually get an appointment you will need to contact one of the organizations which are receiving the vaccine. I attempted to find such an option on each of the local hospital's web site but I could not find it.


However, both HEB and UTRGV do speak to the possibility on their web sites:

There is light at the end of the tunnel.
