The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine is underway in the Crossroads. Only Texans in Phases 1A and 1B of the state's vaccine rollout plan are eligible to receive doses of the vaccine.
Here’s where to go for more information:
Victoria's vaccine hub is expected to receive 1,500 doses of Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine the week of Jan. 25. The doses will be distributed by appointment only at a vaccine clinic. Local officials are still determining how people can register for an appointment and what day or days the clinic will take place. Residents can ask questions by calling the COVID-19 vaccine hotline at 361-580-5796 on weekdays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Anyone in Phase 1A or 1B of the state’s vaccination plan will be eligible for a dose at the upcoming clinic. Future clinics will be scheduled once additional doses become available from the state.
