COVID-19 vaccines to be administered inside Galveston Ball HS this week
GALVESTON, Texas – One of the latest shipments of COVID-19 vaccines will soon be administered inside Galveston’s Ball High School. The non-profit Teen Health Center operates a clinic at the school and plans to start vaccinating school workers and certain students on Tuesday. “The Teen Health Center is uniquely qualified to give these vaccines to the staff because we are right in the schools,” said executive director Angie Brown. The center received 100 doses of the Moderna vaccine last week, but schools were closed for spring break. “Teachers don’t have to take time off of work to go to find a place to make an appointment,” said Brown.
