Immunize El Paso (IZEP) will be transitioning to dispensing COVID-19 vaccinations in a drive-thru hub setting, in line with Texas Department of State Health Services best practices.
“We are excited to expand on our existing partnership with SISD, and by petitioning to become a vaccine hub for El Paso, we can administer an additional 5,000 doses each week,” said Dusty Warden, Director of Operations for Immunize El Paso.
IZEP officials share that he drive-through location, located at Socorro ISD Police Services – 1180 Joe Battle Boulevard – is a product of their long-standing partnership with the Socorro Independent School District.
While most COVID-19 vaccine patients will be diverted to the new location to receive their vaccination, the non-profit organization will continue to operate its three immunization clinics.
Patients who received their initial dose through IZEP will receive a link inviting them to schedule a drive-thru appointment beginning February 3rd at the new drive-thru location.
The indoor drive-thru setting will also help prevent long waits in the elements during inclement weather.
IZEP is currently operating off of their 23,000 patient waitlist to notify patients of vaccine availability.
