Collin County Health Services expects to begin utilizing Plano ISD property Jan. 27 to distribute COVID-19 vaccine allotments for Collin County and the city of Plano.

Plano ISD Superintendent Sara Bonser shared that the east parking lot by the visitor side of John Clark Stadium has been converted into a vaccine mega-center and is ready for vaccinations to begin this week. The initial request to use Clark Stadium as a vaccination hub came from the city of Plano, according to Bonser.

“When the city reached out to Plano ISD, we welcomed the opportunity to partner in this effort for our community,” Bonser said in a written statement.

The vaccination process will open by appointment Jan. 27-29 from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Beginning Feb. 1, the stadium parking lot will be in use for vaccination appointments seven days a week from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. until further notice, according to the district.

The Clark Stadium mega-center is a Collin County and city of Plano initiative, Bonser said, and is not administered or staffed by Plano ISD. Curative Health Services is administering the vaccines.

Collin County’s vaccine waitlist can be accessed here. The county is reaching out to those on the waitlist directly through email or voicemail as appointments become available, said Tim Wyatt, a public information officer for Collin County.
