Three More COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics In Lubbock This Week
More than 15-thousand citizens have received at least their first shot for the COVID-19 vaccine and that number will increase this week. In addition to those who will receive their second shot of the COVID-19 vaccine, the City of Lubbock Health Department announced on Sunday that there will be three clinics this week at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center for those needing to get their first shot.
The clinics this week, as in weeks before, will be open to individuals in groups 1A and 1B. That means frontline workers and those 65 years old and older. Group 1B also includes those over the age of 18 who have at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk.
The clinics this week will be on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Thursday, January 28th from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m. To schedule an appointment, citizens can call the City of Lubbock Health Department beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, January 25. The phone number to call is 806-775-2933. According to the City of Lubbock and the Health Department, you can also sign up online for your first or second dose of the vaccine.

- Those wishing to schedule their second dose can do so by calling the Public Health Department or, beginning Wednesday, January 27, by visiting mylubbock.info/dose2
- Appointments are limited and walk-ups are highly discouraged. Individuals with appointments will be given priority, and walk-ups are not guaranteed a vaccine.
The City of Lubbock will announce when the clinics are full and it is possible that more clinics will be announced next week.
