The City of El Paso is hosting various vaccination Pop-ups this weekend, including at the El Paso Zoo and The Outlet Shoppes at El Paso.

COVID-19 vaccinations are now available to anyone who wants one without the burden of making an appointment. This weekend the City of El Paso is making it easier than ever by hosting more COVID-19 Vaccine Pop-up Events throughout the community, increasing the number of opportunities for residents to walk up, register, and get vaccinated.

This weekend, El Pasoans can stop by to receive their vaccine at any one of the City’s Pop-ups or the Downtown Convention Center Vaccine sites with the added opportunity to win a family 4-pack of tickets to the El Paso Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

For added convenience, residents can also walk up, register, and get vaccinated or schedule an appointment if preferred at the COVID Vaccine Clinics at 9301 Alameda, 7380 Remcon, and 220 S.
