Drive-thru vaccination sites are the most efficient way to vaccinate the greatest number of people in a day; however, Williamson County and its partners also are working on reaching smaller groups that fall in the state’s priority list of Phase 1a and 1b. In order to help the most vulnerable in the community receive the vaccine, this week the County began using special teams to vaccinate people who have a difficult time going to a drive-thru location. Residents in the state’s Phase 1a and 1b groups that want to receive the vaccine can register on the County’s centralized waitlist at  www.wilco.org/coronavirus
