RICHMOND, Texas – Fort Bend County Judge KP George held a news conference Tuesday where he announced an additional shipment of 8,000 COVID-19 vaccines to the Fort Bend County Health Department.
During the news conference, George said Fort Bend County had been officially designated as a vaccine hub, meaning the county will now be receiving regular doses of the vaccine.
George said people can register by going to the Fort Bend County website. Only people who are in phases 1A or 1B will be eligible for the vaccine, but others will be eligible for the vaccine in the future.
While the vaccine offers a “light at the end of the tunnel,” George said people must continue to adhere to CDC guidelines to stay safe and continue to fight the virus.
