For about a month, the hospital has been providing the Coronavirus vaccine out at Ratliff Stadium, administering thousands of doses to the community. Thursday marked the final day at the stadium as they prepared to team up with Odessa Regional Medical Center to lighten the logistical load.

After Thursday, MCH will provide first doses out of its clinics and ORMC will contact residents for their second dose.
