CHRISTUS Good Shepherd COVID-19 Vaccine Hub Expands Access with New Locations
June 17, 2021
Longview, TX – The CHRISTUS Good Shepherd COVID-19 Vaccine Hub is expanding access and now offering vaccine appointments at multiple CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic locations across the region. The vaccine will remain free of charge, and the scheduling process will remain the same – simply visit vaccinate.christushealth.org to make an appointment.
Effective today, the Vaccine Hub will transition away from the Longview Exhibit Center, and appointments are now available Monday through Friday at designated the CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic primary care locations in Longview, Marshall and Kilgore. Walk-in appointments are also available at CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Urgent Care in Longview (2101 W Loop 281). All patients will receive the Pfizer vaccine, which is available to everyone 12 and older.
“The initial demand for vaccine was tremendous, and the Longview Exhibit Center centralized location allowed us to quickly serve thousands of people each weekend,” said Todd Hancock, President and Chief Executive Officer, CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Health System. “Now that demand has significantly decreased and vaccine storage requirements have eased, this is the next step in our efforts to further expand access to this life-saving vaccine.”
The Vaccine Hub Clinic opened January 30, in partnership with Gregg County, the State of Texas and City of Longview. Since opening, more than 70,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to our community.
“We want to extend our deepest gratitude for all of those who gave up their weekends to make the centralized Vaccine Hub a resounding success,” said Hancock. “It would not have been possible without the efforts of volunteers, including Longview Fire and Police, City of Longview, Gregg County Sheriff and many other community partners.”
