The DSHS automatically allocates second doses to providers based on the number of doses they received, so if you have received your first dose, you should be able to return to the same provider to receive your second.

According to the DSHS, Texas providers have administered more than 5 million doses of vaccine, with more than 3.3 million having received at least one dose and almost 1.7 million fully vaccinated.
