Here's where you can still get vaccinated and skirt the Delta variant today

H-E-B is one place to get vaccinated with no appointment necessary. (H-E-B)

This far into the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now easier than ever to get vaccinated and protect yourself and your loved ones from the new Delta variant, which is rapidly spreading with four confirmed cases across Travis County.

After pro gravel biker Moriah "Mo" Wilson is gunned down in South Austin on May 11, police investigators develop a "person of interest," Austin's Kaitlin Armstrong, 34, a real estate agent, yoga teacher, amateur cyclist, and longtime girlfriend of Austin cyclist Colin Strickland.

Originally from Michigan, where a childhood friend described her as "fun loving" and "smart," Armstrong finished college and traveled the world studying yoga, in places like Iceland, Bali, and Mexico.
