Galveston County announced Tuesday it was closing Walter Hall Park in League City for up to three months because it plans to use the park as a public COVID-19 vaccination hub.
The county announced the closure on Tuesday morning.
It's not determined yet when the vaccination site will actually open. The county is working with local agencies and hospitals, including the University of Texas Medical Branch and Galveston County Health District, to develop a system to sign up people to use the hub, officials said.
The hub's opening is also dependent on the supply of vaccines.
Still, county officials said they were confident they would use the space, and have already begun contacting groups that reserved the park to ask them to move or cancel their events.
Officials expect to begin setting up tents at the park on Wednesday, and plan to make more announcements about how the vaccine hubs will operate later this week, officials said.
