WACO, TX — The Waco-McLennan County Public Health District will facilitate a drive-through vaccination clinic at McLane Stadium this Thursday, February 4th through Saturday, February 6th.

The health district says they will administer 1,500 Moderna vaccine doses received by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).

McLane Stadium is located at 1001 S. Martin Luther King Blvd.

All appointments made for this clinic will be contacted from their waitlist at covidwaco.com in the order of sign-up.

People will be notified by the health district through email (wacovaccines@wacotx.com) or by phone (number will begin with 750) to schedule an appointment.

"Please do not contact the Health District if you have not received an email or phone call," the health district said in a statement.

To join the waitlist, register at covidwaco.com or call for help at (254) 750-1980.

Vaccinations are free for eligible individuals in Phases 1A and 1B of the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Plan.

When the second dose of the vaccine is needed, people will be contacted by the health district directly to schedule an appointment. They say signing up on the waitlist for second doses is not needed.

Phase 1A includes front-line health care workers.

Phase 1B includes people 65 and older or people 16 and older with a medical condition that increases risk of severe COVID-19 illness.
