Due to the efforts by community leaders and elected officials, the Rockport-Fulton community was able to get 300 vaccines to test the area’s ability to successfully host a COVID-19 vaccine drive-through event in Aransas County on Wednesday, January 20, 2021.
DSHS Public Health Region 11 Medical Director and staff were present to monitor how our event proceeded. A list of individuals meeting Schedule 1A and 1B requirements were received from various non-profit organizations, physician offices and other programs as trial candidates. The process identified a few minor logistical changes that will be made in the future, overall, the event was successful. Event organizers hope to receive a positive response from DSHS to allow them to provide the vaccine on a regular basis within Aransas County.
