El Paso - Commuters in the Downtown El Paso area tomorrow will have the chance to get caught up on a number of immunizations.

The City of El Paso Department of Public Health and Sun Metro will have a clinic set up and will be providing 14 different vaccines to both children and adults.

Those include DTAP, HEP A, Polio, MMR, Varicella, MCV, HPV among others. The Seasonal Flu Vaccine will not be offered.

“This is a great opportunity to improve the overall health of our community.  Sun Metro has provided us an opportunity to make an even greater impact to the City,” said Roxann Parks, the Department of Public Health’s Immunizations Program Manager.

The clinic will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Bert Williams Downtown Santa Fe Transfer Center located at 601 Santa Fe Street.

The city says the cost is $10 for one person and $20 for two people or more, although no one will be denied service due to inability to pay.
