The Killeen Community Center, 2201 E. Veterans Memorial Blvd., shut its doors for vaccinations at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Bell County spokesman James Stafford said in a news release.

“Officials at the center say that traffic has been steady this morning, but as they monitored forecasts for this afternoon, the decision was made to close before conditions deteriorate,” Stafford said.

Individuals who had appointments booked after 2 p.m. will be rescheduled for appointments on Wednesday.

“On (Wednesday), they will be able to get inoculated at any time during the center’s regular hours of operation between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.,” Stafford said.

However, Stafford continued to warn that individuals may receive emails inaccurately confirming their initial appointment.

“Once again, Bell County officials are aware that, due to technical issues with the booking system, vaccine recipients may receive email confirmations for their original appointments,” he said. “Please disregard those communications.”

Stafford said that county officials are closely monitoring weather forecasts for Friday’s scheduled appointments.
