COVID-19 vaccine transit in Corpus Christi

The American Bank Center, Corpus Christi Natatorium, and the Greyhound Race Track are among the locations considered.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Corpus Christi Mayor Paulette Guajardo and Nueces County Judge Barbara Canales say a new vaccine distribution could hit Corpus Christi in the near future.

Over 7,000 vaccines were distributed to the community this week. On Friday around 8:00 a.m., health authorities had to cancel the mass distribution almost immediately after it opened.

Mayor Guajardo just said the blueprints are being worked out to take the stress out of distributing the vaccines around the fairgrounds.

“We’re going to set up a location in Corpus Christi so we’re fairer and people don’t necessarily have to drive to the fairgrounds,” said Guajardo.

“Although it’s a great location [Robstown] for a mega-drive. I will say that and we are grateful for that. I think it’s important. I am working on it and I will continue to do so. We will update you. “

Health Director Annette Rodriguez has told us which of these sites are being considered.

“We look at the American Bank Center. We look at the Greyhound Race Track. We look at the Natatorium. There are many other places, but you have to consider charging?” Do we have enough resources to get to all of these places? There are many things that go into something on this scale. “
