Plans are underway to stand up a COVID-19 Hub vaccination center in Kaufman County with a goal to be in operation on Jan. 25, assuming vaccines are available from Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).

Additional information will be made available with details of how to register, site location, and hours of operation once plans are finalized.

County leaders, with the assistance of State Representative Keith Bell and in partnership with Trinity Valley Community College, Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), and The Texas Department of Emergency Management (TDEM) are finalizing plans to establish a COVID-19 HUB vaccination center.

The HUB center goal would be to offer up to 1000 vaccinations per week, starting with groups 1A and 1B, and rapidly expanding depending on the number of vaccines made available through DSHS. Vaccinations will be available to people whether or not they are residents of Kaufman County.

Kaufman County Judge Richards expressed his appreciation to Bell. “Representative Bell was instrumental in meeting with senior officials last week with Governor Abbott’s office and TDEM, to ensure that Kaufman County can access unspent CARES act funds to support the HUB operation.”
