The health department is offering the shots each day of the fair in an effort to boost the vaccination rate and make it easy for people to get the vaccine.

Officials said about 100 COVID-19 vaccines were given on the first day alone. 

The vaccine clinic is located behind Big Tex in between the Tower and Grand Building and operates from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and is free.
