Booster shot vaccine clinics are open in Hidalgo County.

The shots are only for moderate or those who are severely immuno-compromised. If you're looking to get one, you'll need to bring your COVID vaccine card.

Health officials still stress the importance of getting vaccinated.

“90% to 100% of the people who are passing away are not vaccinated,” said Hidalgo County Health and Human Services Chief Administrative Officer Eddie Olivarez. “So the message is clear: Vaccines help people stay out of the hospital and stay out of getting critically ill. I ask everyone, if you are not vaccinated, please get your vaccine. I beg you guys, get your vaccine for the benefit of our community and our families, friends and our community."
