Officials say wristbands will be distributed beginning at 8 a.m. until they run out.
Residents must show a valid U.S. ID verifying the age requirement, according to a news release from the city. The city added that the wristbands are not transferable and age will be verified before receiving the vaccine.
The drive-thru clinic will take place on Friday, Feb. 26, at the Harlingen Convention Center in two sessions: a morning session from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. and an afternoon session from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Officials say people aged 65 and older who receive a wristband are guaranteed a vaccine on Friday, Feb. 26, so there is no need to line up the day before as no overnight parking will be permitted.
The clinic will administer 1,000 first doses of the vaccine and is a partnership between the city of Harlingen, Cameron County Public Health and Harlingen CISD.
