Bell County to Serve as COVID-19 Vaccination Hub
Belton, TX – Bell County will soon be serving as one of 28 COVID-19 vaccination hubs in Texas. The state Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has allocated 3,900 doses to the Bell County Public Health District. Delivery is anticipated within the next day or two.
Bell County officials have developed a plan for distributing COVID-19 through two vaccination centers located on each side of the county. As more vaccines arrive, and as resources allow, there may be additional vaccine centers opened.
The Public Health District currently has over 4,000 people on its existing waitlist for vaccination. In accordance with State guidelines and protocols, the plan is to begin scheduling vaccination appointments for eligible recipients within 24-48 hours of the vaccines being delivered.
The Public Health District plans to launch a new appointments system for those eligible for vaccination as early as Thursday, January 14. Please monitor the department’s website for further information.
