NRG Park mega-vaccination site will remain open through May 18

HOUSTON — FEMA and the Texas Department of Emergency Management will keep three community vaccination centers in Houston, Dallas, and Arlington running through May 18, Gov. Greg Abbott announced Wednesday.

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said the NRG Park site, which will now run an additional four weeks, is breaking records in delivering vaccines.

Hidalgo said the site hit a new high of more than 7,000 vaccinations in one day on Monday. It averages about 6,000 per day.

NRG Park is just one of at least 77 sites Harris County is using to vaccinate people. Most are much smaller and often more convenient in places like community centers, assisted living facilities, and churches.
