The Mission Valley site is providing COVID-19 vaccines to seniors, targeting seniors 80 years of age and older. To receive the vaccine, seniors must be pre-registered with the City of El Paso at www.EPCovidVaccine.com or by calling (915) 212-6843.

“Pre-registered seniors will be contacted by staff, to set their COVID-19 vaccination appointment. This site is by appointment only and those who show up without an appointment will be turned away,” city officials stressed.
As the City of El Paso waits to receive more COVID-19 vaccines, residents who are eligible as either Phase 1 Group A, B, C, or serve within the education/child care industry, can pre-register to receive the vaccine with the City of El Paso by going online and clicking on pre-registration form or by calling (915) 212-6843.
Once pre-registered, residents will be notified about the availability of the vaccine and will be provided with next steps.
Officials add that if any individuals have already pre-registered, they do not need to register again, as they have been already included in the queue.
For those requiring assistance in pre-registering, the City continues to offer walk-in assistance and the Stanton COVID Clinic located at 220 S. Stanton (corner of First and Stanton). The walk-in site is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, to assist with the pre-registration process. COVID-19 vaccines are not available at this site.
Health officials remind the public to continue wearing face covers, wash your hands frequently and watch your distancing, regardless of whether you have or have not yet received the vaccine.
