LUBBOCK, Texas — The Lubbock Health Department wanted people to know that even though COVID-19 vaccines are no longer available at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, there are still options to get vaccinated in the Hub City.
United Supermarkets, including Market Street, Amigos and United, will be giving out vaccines.
Tim Purser, Director of Pharmacy at United Supermarkets, said most United Supermarket locations, including Market Street, Amigos and United are administering the Johnson & Johnson, Moderna and Pfizer vaccines. Purser said it’s a convenience to be able to offer the vaccine at the local grocery store.
“I think the advantage that guests have already built with our pharmacy teams makes it a very accessible option for them to come to their local pharmacy to get their vaccine,” Purser said.
Purser said the best thing to do is to call United Supermarket Pharmacy locations first to ensure certain vaccines are in stock. To schedule an appointment at one of the pharmacies click here.
United Supermarkets will have a vaccine clinic Tuesday, May 4th at United Supermarkets Arena from noon until 5:00 p.m.
Katherine Wells, Director of the Lubbock Health Department, said the health department would still be out in the community doing outreach to get people vaccinated.
“We have plans to be out at the malls, out at community centers and some other events,” said Wells. “We’re also looking for some partnerships with Lubbock Independent School District over the summer, working with them to provide vaccine hopefully using some school locations.”
The Health Department will have a vaccine clinic Friday at the First Friday Art Trail at the Depot District from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. For more information click here.
