The majority of vaccine doses were allocated to larger vaccination hubs and hospitals along the I-45 corridor this week, according to DSHS. Nearly 6,000 doses were reserved for the county's two hub sites, including 2,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine for the Lone Star Family Health Center in Conroe and 3,900 doses of the Pfizer vaccine for CHI St. Luke's Health-The Woodlands Hospital.
Both facilities are now operating by invitation only; the Lone Star center announced Jan. 31 it would be scheduling vaccination appointments this week based on priority for those already registered on Montgomery County's vaccine wait list, while St. Luke's is working from its own invitation system.
Information on the Lone Star hub site is available by calling 936-523-5230 and at www.lonestarvaccine.com, while registration for Montgomery County's vaccination wait list may be completed here. Information on the St. Luke's hub site and vaccination wait list is available at www.stlukeshealth.org/montgomerycountyvaccine or by calling 936-202-2060.
Thousands of doses were also allocated to county providers not designated as vaccination hubs this week, with the majority reserved for three hospitals in The Woodlands area. Allocations of 5,850 doses for Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center, 4,875 doses for Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital and 975 doses for Texas Children's Hospital The Woodlands were listed by DSHS, along with smaller allocations of 100 doses each for Aspire Hospital and the St. Hope Foundation in Conroe.
Including the new allocations announced for the week of Feb. 1, more than 65,000 first and second COVID-19 vaccine doses have been reserved for Montgomery County providers through eight weeks of statewide distribution, according to DSHS data. Just under 27,000 of those doses have been administered as of Feb. 1, including 5,460 second doses for full vaccination.
