EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — The Anthony Independent School District and University Medical Center are teaming up to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to the community.

The event will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday at the Anthony High School Gym, 825 Wildcat Dr. It will be free and open to the public. Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines will be available for people ages 12 and older.

Children between the ages of 12 and 17 will need a parent or legal guardian with them or have written permission from their parents or legal guardian to get a shot.

“If a person received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine but missed their second dose, they can show their vaccination card at the AISD clinic and get their second shot,” a news release said.

A return clinic will be held on Sept. 9, to administer second doses of the Pfizer vaccine.
