Victoria County holds third COVID-19 vaccine second shot clinic

2,000 COVID-19 second shots administered

Covid Local Hq 2 9

Victoria County’s third second dose COVID-19 vaccine mega hub happened Tuesday.

For the first time, 2,000 second doses were administered. David Gonzales of the Victoria County Public Health Department said today’s hub was a little slow since they are finishing up the old registration system. The new system, he said, allows paperwork to be done early, making it much faster than the old system. The next Victoria COVID-19 vaccine hub for first doses is Thursday, when they plan to administer 3,000 doses. Gonzales is encouraging people to sign up for the vaccines, that there of plenty of spots open for people in the 1A and 1B groups. He said getting educators into the vaccine hub next week is the goal, and they are discussing getting the Johnson And Johnson vaccine here by the end of March or the beginning of April.
