VACCINE ALERT: Grayson Co. Health Dept. modifies vaccination schedule

The Grayson County Health Department (GCHD) has modified its vaccination schedule.

“The health department will be adjusting our plans to level the field as much as possible, and to improve the rollout of the 1C phase,” GCHD Director Josh Embry said.

If one’s name is on the 1B waiting list (that closed on Friday), Embry said, “You will be taken care of. Do not add your name to the new list.”

According to Embry, the health department is making the following changes to the vaccine schedule:

On Monday, the health department will open a new waiting list for anyone from Phases 1A, 1B and 1C who has yet to receive a vaccine. Those residents can add their names to the new waiting list. The health department will add up to 150 names to the new list.

“We will then close the list and focus on those 150 individuals,” Embry said “Once we take care of those individuals, we will open another list for 150 more names. Again, once we reach 150 names, we will close the list to focus on those individuals.”

This process will repeat until further notice, Embry added.

The health department will open at 7:30 a.m. Monday, and because the agency is anticipating a high number of calls, the health department is adding three operators to assistant with the expected call volume.

The health department can be reached by calling 270-259-3141.
