While our numbers are thankfully diminishing, and more public spaces are opening, and events are coming back, COVID-19 still poses a big threat, and our community is encouraged to get vaccinated.

Haven’t Been Vaxxed?

If you have yet to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, residents can take advantage of the Pop-Up COVID-19 sites across the city. Also, El Paso is now providing vaccines to children aged 12 to 17 - visit the El Paso Convention Center from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. (Child must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.)

This would also be a good time to remind everyone who hasn't received their second shot to make time to get it done.
