The Erath County Vaccination Center continues to get patients in and out with little wait time or hassle.


In fact, if you want to get your vaccine for Covid-19, all you have to do is show up; there is no appointment necessary.

So far, 7,679 people have received the first dose and 4,844 have received the second.


And the best part? There has been zero waste.


Lt. James Gresham with the Stephenville Police Department said the entire process takes about 20 minutes.

“The average time it takes is just over 20 minutes and that includes the 15-minute waiting period after,” Gresham told Beneath the Surface News.


Meanwhile, Erath County officials on Tuesday reported three new cases; two in Stephenville and one in the county.


There are now 15 active cases in the area and no local hospitalizations.
