AMARILLO, TEXAS – Protect your family, friends and neighbors from Covid this winter by staying up to date on your vaccines. In December, the City of Amarillo Public Health Department will host free Covid mobile vaccine clinics.
Medical experts predict an uptick in Covid cases as people gather indoors more often this season. The best way to prevent severe illness and death as a result of Covid is to stay up to date on your Covid vaccines.
The mobile vaccine clinics will have first and second doses and the new booster available. The Covid vaccines and boosters are currently free but will not be in the near future – so Amarillo Public Health encourages residents to take advantage of this opportunity now. Everyone age 6 months and up is eligible to receive a vaccination.
