City Council Meetings To Start In-Person Again

After a full year of zoom style meetings, The Amarillo City Council will return to the Council Chambers on May 11th.

City Manager Jared Miller. “By the May 11 meeting, all adults in Amarillo who want the vaccine will have had the opportunity to be fully vaccinated. Based on that, we feel like we can safely reopen council meetings for in-person, socially-distanced attendance.”

The following is a timeline of the COVID-19 vaccination procedure at the Amarillo Public Health Department (APHD) COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Amarillo Civic Center:
~ The COVID-19 vaccine became available for all adults on Monday, March 29.
~ Second doses for all adults will begin on Monday, April 26.
~ The vaccine’s maximum protection is generally achieved within 14 days after the second dose – or by May 10.
~ The next city council meeting after this date is May 11.

Meetings take place at 1 p.m. in the Council Chambers of City Hall Room 302 at 601 South Buchanan Street.

City Officials say the Covid-19 Clinic has administered more than 120,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
