CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – After receiving a weather briefing this morning from the National Weather Service, Corpus Christi office, the city and county have decided not to have the Phase 1A and 1B mega vaccination drive thru clinic tomorrow due to inclement weather forecasted for Wednesday.

Additionally, the Corpus Christi – Nueces County Public Health District has not heard from the state as to the arrival date and time for our anticipated 5,000 vaccine doses. Should the vaccines come in today or tomorrow, we will hold a Phase 1A and 1B drive thru clinic on Thursday, January 21, at 8:00 a.m. at the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds, 1213 Terry Shamsie Boulevard, in Robstown, Texas. The Health District also will have more portable restrooms on site for patrons along with more informational signage.

The Health District’s mega vaccination drive thru clinics are ideal for people with flexible schedules and non-critical health issues. In addition to the Health District, other local providers have enrolled with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and are approved to provide Plan 1A and 1B COVID-19 vaccines as doses become available.

The Health District is also working to add services that will benefit the most vulnerable population, our seniors. More information is forthcoming.
