Vaccination Centers Closed Friday Due to Inclement Weather

Belton, TX – Both of Bell County’s first dose vaccination sites will be closed Friday, February 12, due to inclement weather. All appointments have been automatically rescheduled.

Those with appointments scheduled for Friday at the Sammons Community Center in Temple have been automatically moved to the same time Thursday, February 18. Likewise, anyone with appointments at the Rosa Hereford Killeen Community Center will now receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on Wednesday, February 17, at the same time as their original appointment.

Due to technical issues with the county’s scheduling system, it is possible some people may receive emails incorrectly confirming their original appointment time and date. Bell County officials apologize for this confusion but request that vaccine recipients disregard any such communications. Patients will only be on the list of eligible recipients on the new day. If they attempt to visit a vaccination center on any other day, they will be turned away.

Bell County health officials are closely monitoring weather conditions for this weekend and early next week. Plans are in place to guarantee new appointments and vaccine doses for anyone whose appointment might be impacted by weather closures. For the most up-to-date information on the closures of Bell County vaccination centers, please monitor the Bell County website and Facebook page.
