Midland Mass Vaccination Sites to Continue For At Least the Next 12 Weeks
The mass vaccination sites in Midland will continue to give the vaccine for at least the next three months.
According to the Midland Reporter-Telegram, the mass vaccination sites at the Midland Horseshoe and the new mass vaccination site starting up next week at Golf Course Road Church of Christ will be giving shots for at least the next three months for people that qualify for Phase 1A and 1B.
Once the GCRCOC location is opened, the Horseshoe Arena will be used to exclusively administer the second dose of the vaccine for those who already got their first shot.
Appointments will be required to for either locations to keep the flow going at a quick and efficient rate.
Midland Health CEO Russell Meyers says they are expecting to receive 5,000 doses per week for the next several weeks.
Jamie Jewett, Assistant Emergency Operations Coordinator for Midland County said the vaccinations for people in Phase 1A and 1B are expected to continue for the next 12 weeks.
Jewett said she has not heard from the state on when the next phase of vaccines will be opened up which would be Phase 1C.
Team Rubicon is a non-profit that aids in disaster relief and they have been in Midland helping at the mass vaccination site since they started administering the vaccine at the Horseshoe Arena last month.
The non-profit has also been taking in donations so they can provide food and drinks for the volunteers.
