MCH asking for volunteers for COVID vaccination site

Coronavirus

ODESSA, Texas (Nexstar) – Medical Center Hospital has already vaccinated more than 8,000 people at their drive-thru site at Ratliff Stadium.

The hospital says they have exhausted their vaccine stores and are currently awaiting its next shipment, which is expected to arrive on Monday. The drive-thru site will reopen Wednesday at Ratliff Stdaium.

In the meantime, MCH is asking for help and encouraging volunteers to sign up.

“And when I say volunteers, I’m talking 50 to 80 every day,” Tippin said. “We’re going to put you in a big orange vest. We’re going to keep you safe. But, everybody who’s ever said, ‘let me know if we can do something to help you,’ this is it.”
