Beginning tomorrow, April 28, the City of El Paso will no longer require the public to schedule appointments to get the COVID-19 vaccine at the Convention Center.
“The City has worked diligently with our community partners to get the vaccine in our residents’ arms, and to improve the process so that we can distribute the vaccine with efficiency, as seen in our high administration rates,” said El Paso Fire Chief Mario D’Agostino.
“El Paso is pleased to report that we have administered over 616,000 vaccines across the region. Nearly 40 percent of our community 16 years of age and older, have been fully vaccinated and more than 60 percent of those 16 and older have received their first vaccine. Among our most vulnerable, those 65 and older, more than 70 percent are fully vaccinated and more than 86 percent have received their first vaccine.”
The City will also host additional COVID-19 Vaccine Pop-up Events over the next several weeks, allowing the community to walk up, register and get vaccinated. Events include:
Thursday, April 29 | 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- El Paso International Airport, 6701 Convair
Saturday, May 1 | 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
