Over the last few days we've written several articles about three very important pieces of information regarding COVID-19 vaccines for our Crossroads community.

We have those articles for you to read in their entirety below. To recap, Victoria was on the list to receive COVID vaccines sometimes this week and was planning to create a HUB for the COVID-19 Vaccine,  and Victoria County working with the Victoria County Public Health Department and the Victoria EOM developed a texting system for your phone to be notified of current COVID-19 vaccination locations.

Last night, the Victoria Public Health Department issued a press release announcing vaccines have arrived and starting today, Wednesday January 20, Victoria county residents identified as Phase 1A and Phase 1B candidates can call to schedule their COVID-19 vaccinations for Thursday.

Phase 1A includes health care workers, emergency service providers and others with an increased risk of coming into contact with the coronavirus, while Phase 1B includes those at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19 and people aged 65 and older.

"The vaccination clinic will open Thursday and will be available only to those who have registered to set up an appointment ahead of time. Registration for an appointment can be completed starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday at https://vctxcovid.apptoto.com/ or by contacting the COVID-19 vaccine hotline – 361-580-5796 – Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., excluding weekends and County holidays," the release reads. Further adding, " The operation is expected to vaccinate 1,000 residents. Future clinics will be scheduled once additional doses become available from the state. 

The press release can be read in its entirety here.
