NEW BOSTON, Texas (KTAL/KSHV) — A walk-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic in Bowie County is available this week to those 18 and older.

The Bowie County Office of Emergency Management along with the statewide Department of Emergency Management will administer the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine at the New Boston Community Center on 301 N.E. Front St.

The clinic will open daily at 10 a.m. and operate until all vaccines are given.

In Texas, anyone over the age of 18 is now eligible to receive the vaccine. No appointment is necessary. “There’s not a huge line, it’s a quick turnaround going in and out, I mean … after the shot you stay 15 minutes and they’ll let you go and then you’ll be on your way,” said Bowie County Emergency Management Coordinator Lance Hall.

Locally, Texas DSHS reports a total of 4,682 confirmed positive COVID-19 cases, and 2,104 probable cases with 207 deaths. The Department of State Health Services is reporting 404 active cases currently in Bowie County.
