Multiple COVID-19 vaccination sites are adjusting their Thursday schedules due to icy driving conditions.

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said Thursday's Fair Park vaccination clinic will be canceled. The clinic had been scheduled to start late due to the weather, but "deteriorating weather conditions that will keep roads icy into the afternoon" forced the closure, Jenkins wrote on Twitter.

The Texas Department of State Health Services provided an update Thursday afternoon on the state’s COVID-19 vaccine allocation and distribution.

Further information about appointments for people who were scheduled tor receive their vaccines Thursday in Fair Park is not yet available.

Denton County announced that the drive-thru vaccination clinic at Texas Motor Speedway will be closed on Thursday. People with appointments for the day were either rescheduled for Wednesday or Friday.

Parkland Health & Hospital System said the COVID-19 vaccine drive-thru sites it operates at Ellis Davis Field House and Eastfield Community College in Mesquite, will also be closed on Thursday through Monday, Feb.15.

In a statement the hospital said:

"Patients who have an appointment for a COVID vaccine (first or second dose) at Ellis Davis or Eastfield on these days should instead go to Parkland Memorial Hospital at 5200 Harry Hines Blvd., Dallas 75235 at their scheduled vaccine appointment time and date. Patients should park in the Tower Garage and go to the main hospital lobby where Parkland staff will direct them to go for their vaccination once in the hospital. In order to avoid long wait times at the hospital, patients should come at their designated appointment time and date."

Tarrant County said its COVID-19 drive-thru testing sites will be closed on Thursday, but vaccination sites, which are not drive-thru, will be open.
