NEW BOSTON, Texas — The daily opening time for a walk-up coronavirus vaccine clinic has changed.
The clinic will open at 10 a.m. rather than the previously announced time, 9 a.m. It continues through Friday at the New Boston Community Center, 301 N.E. Front St., and will operate until all available vaccines are given.
No appointment is necessary. In Texas, anyone age 18 or older is now eligible to receive a vaccine.
The Bowie County Office of Emergency Management is partnering with the statewide Department of Emergency Management to administer the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine at the clinic.
The Texas Department of State Health Services allocated 500 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to the Texarkana-Bowie County Health Department this week.
