AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Authorities in Houston are opening a giant COVID-19 vaccination center that will serve an estimated 126,000 people over the next three weeks. The federally funded site will fully open Wednesday at Houston’s NRG Park, near the home stadium of the NFL’s Houston Texans. Staff will distribute first doses seven days a week for three weeks, then transition to second doses. Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo, the county’s chief elected official, says authorities will prioritize people who live in areas hardest hit by the coronavirus.
