The first of several walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics recently opened in La Palmera shopping center in Corpus Christi. As vaccines become more available and voter turnout for vaccinations falls, the city and county health department is adapting its routes of administration to new circumstances.

“You do not have to show any ID, the vaccines are free, no questions asked, just show up,” said Mayor Pauline Guajardo at a press conference in the town hall on April 15, time in hours. ”

The recordings are now available Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the space between PF Chang’s pizzeria and Grimaldi.

If you want to make an appointment, you can still register for a shot online at the La Palmera clinic cctexas.com/vaccineregistration.

People who cannot travel to a clinic due to health problems or lack of transport can get vaccinated through the “Save our Seniors Homebound” program, which the city / county health department has expanded.

To schedule a vaccination appointment, call 888-728-0018. The shots are administered by the Corpus Christi fire department. Those living in Robstown or an unincorporated area in Nueces County should call extension 361-826-7238. 100 for an appointment.

In the meantime, the larger mass vaccination clinics are being closed. Driscoll Children’s Hospital will no longer be giving vaccinations at the American Bank Center as the venue re-books concerts and events and the space is no longer available. The hospital will phase out all vaccination programs in early May.

The large clinics on Richard M. Borchard’s regional exhibition grounds in Robstown will be retained, but with adjusted opening times. Walk-up vaccinations are now available at the exhibition center on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Health District on 1702 Horne Road in Corpus Christi will be serving 400 first doses of the Moderna vaccine from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Friday, April 23.

“We need to be as flexible as possible so that we can relocate to places where people just walk by,” said Barbara Canales, judge for Nueces County. “If vaccines are plentiful, now we can turn to go to people.”

Canales warned against complacency.

“Just because you can get a vaccine anytime, anywhere now, doesn’t put it off,” she said. “Make today the day you do it. It’s free, available, and convenient. “
