Remembering pandemics past and present

Tuesday, October 25, 2022 by Tai Moses

The theme of the 15th annual Travis County History Day couldn’t be more timely: “Pandemics: Response and Resilience.” Photos, videos and other materials from the Travis County Archives and the Austin History Center’s Covid-19 collections tell the story, accompanied by featured speakers Nicholas Chu, Travis County Justice of the Peace for Precinct 5, and Michael Barnes, an author and journalist. Participants may avail themselves of a free vaccine clinic offering both Covid-19 and flu vaccines. No appointment necessary. Wednesday, Oct. 26, 4:30 p.m., Hall of Government, 700 Lavaca St.
