ODESSA, Texas (Nexstar) – Medical Center Hospital and Odessa Regional Medical Center will provide another Coronavirus update Tuesday afternoon.
Meanwhile, MCH says they are still waiting on their allocation of 3,900 doses of the vaccine to arrive from the state.
The hospital outlined its plan to begin vaccinating the public earlier this week, asking residents to pre-register. However, MCH says pre-registering for the vaccine does not mean you have an appointment, it servers as a show of interest for the vaccine and will help speed up the process once they are able to roll those vaccines out to the public.
MCH plans to host a vaccination clinic when those doses arrive and will prioritize those in the phase 1A and 1B categories. Times and dates for the vaccine clinic are still being determined.
As of Tuesday afternoon, 6,547 cases have been confirmed in Ector County along with 5,675 probable cases, according to the Texas Department of Health and Human Services.
Additionally, the data shows there are currently 778 active cases and 267 virus-related deaths.
