Galveston County’s COVID-19 vaccination partnership with UTMB Health and the Galveston County Health District will enter a new phase starting May 1st. After months of operating a mass vaccination site at the County’s Walter Hall Park, demand at the site has dwindled. More than 50% of the County’s vaccine eligible population has been fully vaccinated, a number that is expected to increase as additional second dose shots are administered.
Crews are currently working on installing a storm sewer system across the IH-45 southbound frontage road north of FM 518. They will be closing the left lane on the IH-45 southbound frontage road from just south of Clear Creek to the FM 518 intersection from 9 p.m. on Friday, April 9 to 5 a.m. on Monday, April 12. Please plan on taking an alternate route.
