The Bryan city council learned during Tuesday’s meeting that 7,326 people were vaccinated during the first seven days of operating the Brazos Center vaccination hub.
12 to 20 percent of those who appeared at the Brazos Center were turned away because they did not have an appointment.
There are nearly 2,000 volunteers and more are needed. Click HERE to be directed to the online volunteer registration site.
Brazos County’s pandemic response coordinator, Jim Stewart, said preparations continue to open a new registration call center.
Stewart also said they are still working on registration alternatives to assist underserved populations and those without internet access.
As in past reports to governing bodies, Stewart still expects taking two to three months to finish vaccinating the phase 1-B population and until October to complete vaccinations in Brazos County.
Tuesday’s meetings of the Bryan council and the Brazos County commission included approving a cost-sharing agreement for the vaccination hub. The College Station city council will consider action on the agreement during their meeting this Thursday.
