COVID-19 shots will be available during a vaccine drive this month on the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso campus.
Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso, the medical practice of the Foster School of Medicine, will administer a Pfizer vaccine from 3 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 17, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18.
Registration can be completed online by filling out all requested information.
For those interested in receiving the vaccine as a booster, shots are available if you are immunocompromised or if you received the full vaccine more than eight months ago.
Officials add that Pfizer booster shots can be administered to those who previously received the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
Those who have been infected with COVID-19 in the past can receive the booster if 90 days have passed since testing positive.
On the day of the event, parking will be available in lots marked T3, P11 and P7. Please arrive on time; however, there is no need to arrive early. Also plan for a 15-minute observation period after the shot is administered.
