Fort Bend County Health & Human Services coronavirus testing and vaccination sites are closed Feb. 18. These county-run locations have been closed since Feb. 15 due to wintry precipitation and ongoing freezing temperatures, which caused widespread power outages.
Fort Bend County residents needing their second dose of the coronavirus vaccine will be prioritized once the sites reopen, County Judge KP George said in a video posted to Facebook Feb. 18.
“[FBCHHS] is working tirelessly to open the vaccine administration centers back,” George said.
Once vaccination sites have consistent power and are reopened, the county said they will operate with extended hours. Patients with previous appointments will receive a call or an email to reschedule.
A total of 48,534 Fort Bend County residents have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to the FBCHHS coronavirus dashboard. Additionally, 35,954 coronavirus vaccines have been administered at county-run locations.
