Though it's the county with the highest Covid vaccination rate in the Rio Grande Valley, county officials are hoping to get that number to 100% by reaching those in need of a second shot.

A vaccine clinic in the city of Roma reported low vaccination rates, which Starr County Judge Eloy Vera said is how things have been going for a while.

Judge Vera says that he and others in Starr County are trying to encourage others get fully vaccinated, especially for the younger generation.

Vera said 99.9% of the eligible population in the county has received one dosage of the vaccine. Only 87% of the eligible population has been fully vaccinated.
