>> SO BRIAN I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HEARD YOU WERE TOLD YOU GOING TO

GIVE US AN UPDATE. >> YES, MA'AM ACTUALLY I WAS.

ABOUT THE VACCINE IF YOU DON'T MIND.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE OUR RESIDENTS KNOW THAT THERE ARE MULTIPLE WAYS RIGHT NOW THAT THEY CAN, THAT THOSE THAT QUALIFY UNDER PHASE 1-A OR PHASE 1-B CAN BE VACCINATED.

ONE THING I WANTED TO ANNOUNCE THE HEALTH AUTHORITY IS A HOSTING A VACCINE CLINIC THIS THURSDAY.

THEY ARE THE HEALTH AUTHORITY FOR THE CITY.

THEY WILL BE DOING AT HOME B JOHNSON STADIUM BY APPOINTMENT ONLY ON THURSDAY JANUARY 21. THE ONE THING THAT I WANT TO STRESS IS THAT IT'S IS NOT A ONE-TIME EVENT.

THEY ARE EXPECTED TO BE DOING THIS MAYBE A COUPLE TIMES A WEEK MAYBE MORE OFTEN DEPENDING ON HOW MANY VACCINE DOSES ARE RECEIVED. BUT, WHAT WE WANT THE PUBLIC TO KNOW IS YOU HAVE TO REGISTER. SO, I WANT TO REPEAT SOME INFORMATION THAT IS ON OUR WEBSITE.

SO EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT. TO REGISTER AT THIS TIME YOU HAVE TO BE EITHER IN PHASE 1-A OR PHASE 1-B.

AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE, AND YOU HAVE TO BE A RESIDENT OR EMPLOYEE OF THE CITIES OF ROWLETT.

FOR ROWLETT CITIZENS I WANT YOU TO KNOW THIS IS NOT JUST THE DALLAS COUNTY SITE. IF YOU LIVE IN ROCKLAND COUNTY YOU STILL QUALIFY TO REGISTER AND TO GET YOUR VACCINE THROUGH THE GARLAND HEALTH AUTHORITY. SO NEXT.IS THE VACCINE IS FREE.

AND THE COVID-19 VACCINATIONS ARE VOLUNTARY.

SO, TO REGISTER, YOU WOULD GO TO GP H AT GARLAND TX.GOV.

OR YOU CAN CALL THEIR HOTLINE AT 972-205-3900.

[00:05:09]

THE SECOND WAY YOU CAN REGISTER IS TO THROUGH DALLAS COUNTY HEALTH AND HUMAN RESOURCES. AND, EXCUSE ME DALLAS COUNTY HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES. AGAIN, THEY HAVE THREE LOCATIONS. FAIR PARK, ELLIS DAVIS FIELDHOUSE AND THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO VACCINATE UP TO 2,000 TODAY. JUST REALIZE AGAIN THIS IS FOR THE ENTIRE COUNTY. I BELIEVE THEY ARE EVEN LETTING PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE COUNTY REGISTER.

AGAIN YOU HAVE TO QUALIFY FOR PHASE 1-A OR PHASE 1-B.

FOR THE RECORD, PHASE 1-B YOU HAVE TO BE 65 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER. OR YOU HAVE TO BE OR 16 YEARS OF AGE OF OLDER AND HAVE AN UNDERLYING CONDITION TO QUALIFY.

SO WHEN WE GET THROUGH THAT LIST, THEN WE WILL MOVE TO THE NEXT PHASE OR THE NEXT PHASES WHICH WILL INCLUDE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE POPULATION. AGAIN, THIS WILL BE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, SO IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO REGISTER, REGISTRATION BY PHONE IS AVAILABLE AT 469-749-9900.

AGAIN THIS IS THROUGH DALLAS COUNTY HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES. MULTIPLE WAYS TO RESPOND, TO REGISTER TO GET YOUR VACCINE OF COURSE, THERE ARE A PRIVATE SECTOR THAT ALSO HAVE RECEIVED VACCINES.

JUST REALIZE IT IS VERY LIMITED SUPPLY.

EVEN IF YOU WENT TO CVS OR WENT TO THE HOSPITAL, OR WHATEVER, YOU MAY BE ON A WAITING LIST FOR QUITE A WILD.

SO PLEASE TUNE INTO OUR WEBPAGE AT ROWLETT.COM AND KEEP UP WITH THE CHANGES. AGAIN YOU CAN REGISTER AT MULTIPLE LOCATIONS AND A WEBSITE TELLS YOU WHERE THOSE LOCATIONS

ARE THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU SO MUCH BRIAN, HOPEFULLY WILL ALL GET OUT THERE REGISTER.

PLEASE KNOW THAT THIS IS NOT RESTRICTED WITHIN THE COUNTY LINES. YOU ALREADY SAID THAT IN THAT CANNOT BE SAID ENOUGH. WE APPRECIATE WHAT GARLAND HEALTH HAS DONE THEY HAVE DONE AN UNBELIEVABLE JOB AS OUR HEALTH AUTHORITY. DURING THIS PANDEMIC.
