Brazos County Vaccine Hub to receive 5,000 doses in first week

In its first full week of operation, the Brazos County COVID-19 vaccination hub at the Brazos Center is set to distribute 5,000 doses of vaccine to local residents.

Vial of Moderna vaccineIn its first full week of operation, the Brazos County COVID-19 vaccination hub at the Brazos Center is set to distribute 5,000 doses of vaccine to local residents.

Starting Monday, February 1, residents who registered via the vaccine portal and received a scheduled appointment will begin getting their vaccines. By State of Texas designation, these are only people who fall within the 1A or 1B category.

The vaccination hub is by appointment only. Walk-ins will be turned away. Those who qualify under the 1A or 1B designation can go to BrazosHealth.org to get put on the waiting list. Once on the list, they will then be contacted via email to set an appointment.

Brazos County Vaccine Task Force Chief Jim Stewart is reminding everyone to please be patient and understand there will be a wait. With approximately 65,000 people qualifying in the 1B category, and about 5,000 doses of vaccine per week, this will be a slow process. But, the process is underway and progress is being made.

Volunteers Needed to Help with Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic

The Brazos County Vaccine Taskforce is gearing up to manage a community COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Brazos Center.  To do this successfully, volunteers are needed to help coordinate the effort.  The American Red Cross is taking the lead in recruiting and managing volunteers for the hub.

An estimated 30 volunteers will be needed each day, starting January 25, between the hours of 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.  Volunteers will help with traffic flow, registration, vaccinations, monitoring, among other needs.

High-priority needs include:

            1. Spanish speakers

            2. Data-entry/Registration (computer competent)

            3. Vaccine administers (medical license or experience required)

Volunteers may sign up at:  https://timecounts.org/bv-vaccinehub/forms/51501

Registered volunteers will receive information about available positions and how to schedule shifts via the Timecounts.org system.

Once up and running, the vaccination clinic will be by appointment only.  Information on how to register for an appointment will be forthcoming.  For now, all COVID-19 vaccine information can be found at the Brazos County Health District website, www.BrazosHealth.org.

Laura Expected to Be Category 4 Hurricane Before Making Landfall Along TX-LA Border

Hurricane Laura is rapidly strengthening and is expected to be an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane before making landfall along the Texas-Louisiana border on Wednesday night.

The threats to areas around Sabine Pass and the Texas-Louisiana border region are significant from this storm.

See the 10 a.m. update from the National Hurricane Center

At this time, Brazos County does not appear to be in significant danger from the effects of the storm. Forecasts show we may get some thunderstorms, perhaps 1 inch of rainfall and some gusty winds, but the main threats are to the east of us.

Still, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the latest weather reports and be aware as this powerful storm hits the gulf coast.
