Hays County is preparing to distribute COVID-19

TEXAS: As per the reports, Hays County will soon distribute vaccines for coronavirus.

Tammy Crumley, the Hays County Local Health Department Director said the residents can ask the officials and determine if they can get a vaccine at a company in Hays County that already has the vaccine.

“We are coordinating with Austin Public Health in Travis County, which is a hub, to in order to dispense the vaccine to Hays County residents in the  Phase 1B category,” she said. “Bexar County is also a hub.”

For this phase 1B vaccination, candidates who are 65 and older or are 16 or older with at least one chronic medical condition are focused.

“Because the vaccine supply is still limited, we’re asking the public to be patient and understand that we want everyone who wants the vaccine to get it, but it may be days or weeks before an appointment is available,” Crumley said.

“Trauma affects everyone and COVID has certainly brought trauma to our community,” Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra said. “No one is immune, and the effects of the virus can hit any family or business. Please be kind to each other.”
