New Plano Vaccination Hubs

The State is adding more vaccination hubs in North Texas according to an NBC 5 DFW article from January 23rd. In it they say:

 

“The state of Texas has added additional hubs across the state, including in North Texas, to its list of COVID-19 vaccine providers for the upcoming week.

. . .

According to the Department of Health and Human Services, the state will receive another 332,750 first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and will order 216,350 doses intended as second doses.

The new first doses will be shipped to 212 providers across the state, including 82 hub providers. The state health department said second doses are allocated to providers based on the number of first doses they receive, so people should be able to get their second dose from the same provider.”

 

Plano is also getting two new hubs according to a Community Impact article from January 20th. In it they say:

 

“Two new distribution centers are making COVID-19 vaccines more available to Plano residents.

Baylor Scott & White Health locations began operating as state-designated vaccination hubs this week in Collin and Dallas counties, according to a statement from the health system. The Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in Plano received 975 Pfizer vaccines in the latest allotment from the state. Vaccines will be administered at the Plano campus, said Matthew Olivolo, senior marketing and public relations consultant for Baylor Scott & White Health.

A vaccine mega-hub is also expected to open next week at Plano ISD’s John Clark Stadium parking lot. This site is expected to begin vaccinating residents from the Collin County waitlist beginning next week, Collin County Commissioner Duncan Webb said at a Jan. 20 Plano Chamber of Commerce meeting. This center will be run by Curative, with which Collin County Health Care Services contracted for the site in January.”

 

Appointments can be made at the hospital website itself or through phone call.
