Baylor Scott & White College Station received 1,170 doses of the Pfizer vaccine the week of March 1. All of them will be used during the drive-thru clinic on Saturday, according to a press release given by the hospital.

BAylor Scott & White Regional President Jason Jennings was at the drive-thru clinic Saturday morning. He was there to observe the process and talk with members of the media on the hospital's response to administering the COVID-19 vaccine in its communities.

The hospital is also working out at the Washington County COVID-19 Vaccine subHUB in Brenham, working to get people vaccinated who want it.
