According to County officials, Hondo HEB was the first to receive 100 doses of the Covid vaccine, and they are working with the Health Unit and Medina Regional hospital to vaccinate our healthcare workers around the county.
Medina County will receive 300 more doses of the long-awaited covid vaccine this week, officials say.
“Our hospital will be getting the vaccines and distributing them to healthcare workers this week. I expect more in the next two weeks for first responders to arrive, including EMS personnel, firefighters, and police/deputies,” Emergency manager Keith Lutz said.
A statement from the County detailed that “Medina Regional will be receiving 300 doses later this week and begin vaccinating their staff and clinic staff. Some of our nursing homes are getting updates that they will be receiving notice soon on vaccine allocation for their staff and residents.”
“The Medina County Health Unit is awaiting our allocation, and when we get it, we will continue our first line health workers and first responders as well as any nursing homes that may not be receiving direct allocation or have a contract with another agency. More updates to come as we receive notice.”
