North Texas COVID-19 vaccination hubs are all set to resume vaccine administration after they were forced to shut down due to winter storms.
On Sunday, the Dallas County COVID-19 vaccination site at Fair Park opened its doors again, for second vaccination doses only.
More than 4,000 shots were given out at the site Sunday.
According to Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, the storm delayed their operations and more than 20,000 people are still in the waiting line.
Sunday’s great weather made the operation run smoothly.
Getting operations back to normal is good news but with a bad one. As we know, Tarrant and Dallas counties will start their FEMA assisted hubs this week, the state will get a reduced dosage almost half.
The government is supplying doses only to the most vulnerable communities. This move made Jenkins uncomfortable. He said, "Those tents that aren't being used, is where they will be giving the Pfizer vaccine to the 17 zip codes that are most underserved, but we need to the governor to reverse his decision and send Dallas and Tarrant county back the vaccine that he took from us."
That aside, many getting the vaccine said they are happy to get fully vaccinated.
