COVID-19 Booster Shots available on TTUHSC El Paso Campus next week; Vaccine clinics at Clint ISD campuses

As the FDA recently authorized additional COVID-19 vaccine doses (booster shots) for certain immunocompromised individuals. TTUHSC El Paso and TTP El Paso will administer booster shots during a vaccine drive on campus to those immunocompromised individuals who meet the CDC’s recommendations.

During the drive, we will administer the Pfizer vaccine. If you previously received the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you may receive the Pfizer vaccine as a booster shot.

Booster shots are available to all who qualify, including our faculty, students and staff, their families, and the El Paso community. They will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, and those interested must complete a registration application online

The vaccination schedule and location are as follows:

  • 1 – 4 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 29
  • Medical Sciences Building II, 1st floor, 137 Rick Francis St.
  • Parking will be available in lots marked T3, P11 and P7

Currently, the CDC’s recommendations for booster shots include people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last two years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

Additionally, TTUHSC El Paso, in partnership with some local school districts, will be hosting COVID-19 vaccine clinics for children 12 and older as well as any adult who would like to get vaccinated.
