Chambers County designated as Vaccine HUB

CHAMBERS COUNTY – Samantha Humphrey, Public Information Officer for the county, reports receiving quite a few calls and emails over the weekend regarding Chambers County’s designation as a COVID-19 vaccination HUB. She said that the county is still in the very early stages of planning vaccination sites.

Here is some basic information that may be of use:

Chambers County learned of their designation as a vaccination HUB on Saturday, January 16, 2020 and immediately began working to identify potential mass vaccination sites and staff.

The county has a limited number of vaccines available currently, and so pre-registration for sites will be required. Information regarding pre-registration for these sites will be released soon. No unregistered walk ups or drive ups will be accepted.

Because of the limited number of vaccines available at each site, we will not be releasing locations publicly. Only the date will be public. Once a person registers for a vaccine date, they will receive the time and location of their vaccine site, as well as any additional pertinent information.

Vaccines will be available for all Phase 1A and Phase 1B populations. Registration will take place on a first-come, first-served basis.

Once information is finalized, we will publicize it. Residents who have signed up for the Chambers Warns (mass alert) system will receive a phone call and/or text and we will also promote through the media.
