Denton County Public Health canceled COVID-19 drive-thru vaccination clinics on Thursday and Friday due to forecast high winds.

According to DCPH, models by forecasters from the National Weather Service Fort Worth show high wind speeds during clinic hours on both days, posing safety concerns for participants, staff and volunteers.

“Our colleagues in the National Weather Service continue to be a critical planning partner for our recall clinic operations,” Denton County Judge Andy Eads said. “After reviewing the updated NWS forecast, high winds exceeding 40 miles per hour are creating safety concerns for everyone on site, forcing us to cancel drive-through clinics on Thursday and Friday.”

Although clinics are closed, individuals may also receive booster doses from primary care providers and / or pharmacies, DCPH said.

“The safety of our community members, staff and volunteers at our outdoor clinics continues to be our top priority,” said DCPH Director Dr. Matt Richardson. “We look forward to providing appointments for the booster doses as soon as we confirm the new dates and times.”
