Unified Command Team to discuss vaccine update, coronavirus response

Local News

MIDLAND, Texas (Nexstar) – The Midland Unified Command Team will meet again this morning for a coronavirus vaccine update and discuss its overall response to the virus.  

Last week, Midland Health pressed on with most of its vaccination clinics despite the freezing temperatures. The hospital has also simplified the process for those looking to receive their first or second dose of the vaccine.  

Hospital CEO Russell Meyers says patients will receive their second dose at the same place they received their first dose. Meaning, if you received your first dose at the Midland Horseshoe arena, you would receive your second dose there as well.  

Currently, Midland County has two mass vaccine sites open at the Horseshoe Arena and the Golf Course Road Church. To receive the vaccine, residents must register here, and wait to receive an appointment from MMH.  

Meyers said there has been some drop off in vaccine demand, although he expected that to be short-lived, due in part to the severe weather.  

As of Tuesday morning, the total case count in Midland County was up to 16,236 with 236 virus-related deaths.
