The parking lot of Clear Creek ISD's Challenger Columbia Stadium will be turned into a COVID-19 vaccination site during the week of Jan. 25, according to district leaders.
The stadium parking lot will be one of eight rotating vaccination sites set up by Harris County Public Health, Superintendent Eric Williams said during a Jan. 25 board of trustees meeting. The hub opens Jan. 27 and will be operational through Jan. 30. County officials will return in 28 days to provide recipients with their second vaccine dose, Williams said.
Appointments can be made online once the health department opens registration.
Vaccines will be administered to those who qualify under Phases 1A and 1B of the state of Texas' vaccination plan, CCISD Chief Communications Officer Elaina Polsen said in a Jan. 22 email; this includes individuals over age 65 and those considered high-risk based on preexisting conditions.
The health department is one of six vaccine hub providers in Harris County. There are two in Galveston County, with a third potentially opening at Walter Hall Park.
