It was a historic moment at Texas Emergency Hospital when mayors from the cities of Cleveland, Liberty, and Dayton came together to receive their COVID-19 booster shots. They have been working closely throughout the pandemic to encourage people from across the county to get vaccinated.
Vaccination in Liberty County is around 54.3% (fully vaccinated), a percentage that could be improved. We are confident that this rate will increase, as more people get vaccinated in the next coming months. Emergency Hospital Systems continues to encourage everyone to receive their COVId-19 vaccine, wear a face covering, practice social distancing, and use proper hand hygiene to continue fighting to end COVID-19.
CDC has expanded recommendations for booster shots to include all adults ages 18 years and older who received a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine at least six months ago.
Texas Emergency Hospital Vaccination Hub continues to provide the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for first and second dose administrations. Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna booster shots are available, and an individual may choose which vaccine they receive as a “mix-and-match” booster dose. Individuals who received a COVID-19 vaccination are eligible at 6 months or more after their series.
No appointment is required to receive vaccination or booster shot. Individuals are required to bring their vaccination card with them, along with their identification and insurance card (if applicable).
