The Army National Guard will hold two COVID-19 vaccine clinics this weekend at First United Methodist Church in Breckenridge.

On Saturday, April 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. they will have 200 doses of the Johnson and Johnson one-dose vaccine available. Anyone 18 or older can just show up at the church located at 419 W. Walker St. and get the shot, while supplies last. Those getting the vaccine will need to have a photo ID, such as a driver license, with them.

Then on Sunday, April 11, they will be at the church to give the second Moderna vaccine shot to anyone who received their first shot on March 14. They will be giving the shots from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All vaccines shots are free of charge.

Additionally, the Breckenridge Medical Clinic and Walmart and CVS pharmacies periodically have doses of the vaccines available. To get the vaccine at Walmart or CVS, you first need to go to their websites and sign up. To sign up to get the vaccine at the Breckenridge Medical Clinic, you need to call their office at 254-522-6236. Chris Curtis, Director of Business Development at Stephens Memorial Hospital, will also be scheduling additional vaccine clinics.

Today, Friday, April 9, National Guard members are in Stephens County giving home vaccines to residents who had received home vaccines from them last month.  As of Friday at lunch time, Stephens County had zero reported active COVID-19 cases, according to Stephens Memorial Hospital.
