The number of COVID-19 vaccine distributors throughout Williamson County grew to 38 during the week of March 8, Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell said during a March 9 Commissioners Court meeting.

Gravell added that Williamson County hub partners Family Hospital Systems and Curative received 18,700 first-round doses, 9,700 second-round doses and 3,900 Johnson & Johnson doses, which only requires a single shot, for a total of 32,300 shots, Gravell said.

Gravell added that the Dell Diamond vaccination location in Round Rock will open March 12 and will operate 18 drive-thru lanes seven days a week. It will be operated by Curative.

Vaccinations will also continue to take place at the Georgetown ISD Athletic Complex operated by Curative and the Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex operated by Family Hospital Systems, and mobile operations will continue to be geared toward those who cannot leave for a vaccine, including those in nursing homes and long-term care facilities.

Williamson County is not a vaccine hub, as it is only helping to organize large-scale operations.
