The Texarkana-Bowie County Family Health Clinic had a busy week last week by vaccinating 600 individuals qualifying in Phase 1A and 1B.  But there were no more vaccines allocated for this week and with the long waiting list already in place they have decided to suspend the sign-up list temporarily. 

According to a press release, there are currently more than 4,680 names on the clinic’s waiting list for vaccinations; however, the waiting list will be suspended at this time until the Health Department receives more allocations to supply the demand.

Bowie County’s vaccination hub at CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System was allocated 2,000 doses of vaccination this week, and all appointments for these doses have been filled. Individuals may visit vaccinate.christushealth.org after 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 15 for updated information on vaccines.

Individuals qualifying under Phase 1A and 1B who are interested in receiving a vaccination should continue to monitor the Texas Department of State Health Services Vaccination Availability Map at https://tdem.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=3700a84845c5470cb0dc3ddace5c376b to find a proximal location for vaccinations.
