Four More COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics In Lubbock This Week
More than 20,000 citizens have received at least their first shot for the COVID-19 vaccine and that number is set to increase this week. In addition to those who will receive their second shot of the COVID-19 vaccine, the City of Lubbock Health Department announced on Sunday that there will be four clinics this week at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center for those needing to get their first shot.
The clinics this week, as in weeks before, will be open to individuals in groups 1A and 1B. That means frontline workers and those 65 years old and older. Group 1B also includes those over the age of 18 who have at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk. Expect for all clinics for the next few months to be open to those in 1A and 1B.
In addition to Lubbock doing COVID-19 vaccines, the City is giving 1,000 first round doses to United Supermarkets for citizens in group 1B. This is to make sure the vaccine is being distributed in different areas of the community. The United Supermarkets location Parkway Drive, along with the location at 50th and Avenue Q, and the Amigos on North University all received doses of the vaccine. According to the City of Lubbock, all United Supermarket appointments have already been filled, but future vaccine allotments will be assigned to pharmacies on a rotating basis.
