In the ongoing effort to provide the COVID-19 vaccine to as many as possible as safely and conveniently as possible, the City of Amarillo Public Health Department is implementing mobile vaccination clinics at sites throughout the city.
The Amarillo Public Health Department (APHD) will begin operating mobile vaccination clinics on Thursdays at alternating sites on April 29. Sites will be located in all four quadrants of the city.
The COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Amarillo Civic Center will operate every Monday, Tuesday and Friday, in addition to the first and second Saturday of each month. COVID-19 vaccination clinics will NOT be available on Wednesdays to allow APHD staff adequate time to input data. Since APHD began the COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Amarillo Civic Center in late December, the lowest demand for the COVID-19 vaccine has been on Wednesdays.
This new schedule also allows APHD to fulfill its other health care responsibilities to the public, including refugee clinics, immunizations, etc.
“The City of Amarillo is committed to getting the COVID-19 vaccine into the arm of every interested citizen, and to making it as easy as possible,” said Amarillo Mayor Ginger Nelson. “The mobile clinics show the city’s continued flexibility in adapting to the needs of the community. By moving into the communities, we are eliminating yet another barrier to the vaccines. If they can’t come to us for any reason, we’re coming to them.”
“The City of Amarillo is making the COVID-19 vaccine open and available to all who want to be vaccinated,” said Amarillo resident Julian Reese. “Individuals can make their own decisions on whether to be vaccinated based on what is best for themselves and their families. It is important, though, that the vaccine be easily accessible to all who want it.”
