The Wednesday, May 19 Gonzales County vaccine clinic has been moved to the THRIVE Healthplex, 1300 Captain Albert Martin Trail, from the J.B. Wells Expo. The hours remain from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
There will be 500 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which does not require a follow-up shot.
This is the first clinic in which the county will resume the use of the Johnson & Johnson Janssen vaccine after it was paused and re-authorized by the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control, following reports of rare blood clots.
