UPDATE: January 14, 2021 at 6:17 p.m.
According to health officials, appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Saturday, Jan. 16, have been filled.
However, officials said those who do not have an appointment but are on the COVID-19 vaccine waiting list should monitor their phones.
If you are on the vaccine waiting list and still have not received a call about an appointment, you may receive a call to schedule an appointment for the clinic if there are any cancellations.
WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A vaccine clinic could help cut down the lines on health officials’ waiting list for people needing the COVID-19 vaccine.
The clinic will be up and running this weekend.
This was made possible when 975 doses became available after the North Texas State Hospital received and finished administering from their first shipment.
While they were unable to reallocate the doses to other providers, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission granted them authority to use what’s left for this appointment-based vaccine clinic.
“We have our waiting list and we’ve begun calling those individuals, if they don’t answer their phone we won’t leave a message and we ask that people if you have a missed call and you believe it’s the health department please not call up here,” Wichita Falls-Wichita County Public Health Director Lou Kreidler said.
Kreidler said they have a system and will go back over their list and call again.
Also, they are still not aware of when the county will receive more vaccines.
