Memorial Hermann also opening vaccine clinic Thursday

HOUSTON – Houston Methodist Hospital was organizing a vaccination event on Saturday and said it worked with state officials to find those who need it most.

“We’ve already vaccinated over 41,000 Houstonians and so we’re proud of that,” said Cathy Easter, Senior Vice President of Community Development at Methodist Hospital.

Methodist Hospital plans to vaccinate 4,000 more people on Saturday.

“It was open to the public. We worked with the state and publicized it through the state’s website since we were selected as a hub,” said Easter.

Methodist is one of 28 hubs statewide, chosen for its ability to vaccinate a lot of people quickly.

“We opened up a call line on Monday, it was completely filled by yesterday morning,” said Easter.
