I wanted to give everyone an update. Four COVID-19 vaccine hubs are currently approved by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and are providing vaccinations in Collin County. All four vaccine hubs are available by appointment only.
Collin County Health Care Services (CCHCS) received 2,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine this week and is currently operating a vaccine hub at its clinic in McKinney. Appointments have already been made for these 2,000 doses from the Collin County vaccine wait list. The CCHCS hub will relocate to Plano ISD’s John Clark Stadium next week.
The City of McKinney received 2,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine this week and is currently operating a vaccine hub at the McKinney ISD football stadium.
The City of Allen received 2,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine this week and is currently operating a vaccine hub at the Allen ISD football stadium.
Baylor Scott & White Health (BSW) received 975 doses of the Pfizer vaccine this week and is currently operating a vaccine hub at the BSW facility in Frisco.
Collin County has developed a cooperative vaccine partnership with 29 other local jurisdictions to provide vaccinations as efficiently as possible to all residents of Collin County and Texas. Included in the partnership are 24 local cities (Anna, Blue Ridge, Celina, Fairview, Farmersville, Frisco, Josephine, Lavon, Lowry Crossing, Lucas, McKinney, Melissa, Murphy, Nevada, New Hope, Parker, Plano, Princeton, Prosper, Richardson, Sachse, Saint Paul, Weston, and Wylie), four local school districts (Frisco ISD, McKinney ISD, Plano, ISD, Wylie ISD), and Collin College.
Collin County and its partner agencies have the capacity to administer 6,000 vaccine doses per day at each location. CCHCS has requested 42,000 vaccine doses from DSHS for the CCHCS vaccine hub next week.
The vaccine hubs operated by Collin County and the City of McKinney have been and will continue to schedule vaccination appointments from the unified Collin County vaccine wait list hosted by Collin County and its partner agencies. This wait list is open to all Texans who are eligible according to the DSHS Phase 1A and Phase 1B definitions.
Collin County also launched a wait list lookup yesterday for residents to confirm their wait list registration.
The City of Allen and Baylor Scott & White Health have elected to operate their vaccine hubs independent of the local vaccine partnership, and neither entity will be utilizing the Collin County vaccine wait list. For more information about the City of Allen vaccine registration process, Collin County residents may visit the city website or call (214) 509-4400. For more information about the Baylor Scott & White vaccine registration process, Collin County residents may visit the BSW website or call (844) 279-8222.
Texas DSHS advises that the vaccine will not be readily available for most Texans until late spring or early summer 2021. Visit the Texas DSHS COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Locations map to find nearby providers who have received the vaccine, or visit the Collin County website for additional updates as they become available.
We just received word that Collin County Health Care Services (CCHCS) will receive 2700 doses for next week.
Take care, be safe and we will survive this.
