CHRISTUS Good Shepherd COVID-19 Vaccination Hub Clinic Postponed

The CHRISTUS Good Shepherd COVID-19 Vaccination Hub Clinic scheduled for this weekend, Feb. 20 & 21, is being postponed due to a vaccine shipment delay caused by Winter Storm Uri.

Those with an appointment scheduled for Feb. 20 & 21 will be automatically rescheduled for the same time slot on the dates below, and no action on their part is needed at this time:

  • Saturday, Feb. 20 (2nd dose appointments) will be rescheduled for Friday, Mar. 5
  • Sunday, Feb. 21 (1st dose appointments) will be rescheduled for Sunday, Mar. 7

Beginning this evening, individuals will receive a text or phone call alerting them of their new appointment. If you are unable to participate on the rescheduled dates and wish to cancel your appointment, please call 877-335-5746.

Individuals will also receive a text, phone or email confirmation of their new appointment 72 hours prior to their appointment. When these confirmations are received, individuals may also confirm or cancel their appointment at that time.

We want to reassure those affected that rescheduling the Feb. 20 second dose appointments for Mar. 5 is still in keeping with current CDC guidelines for administering the Pfizer vaccine. If it is not feasible to adhere to the recommended 21-day interval, the second dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines may be administered up to six weeks (42 days) after the first dose and still be effective.

CHRISTUS Good Shepherd, alongside our partners Gregg County, City of Longview and the State of Texas, appreciate everyone’s patience and flexibility as our teams work diligently and as swiftly as possible to modify Hub Clinic operations in response to the winter storm.

If you have questions about your personal health concerns or history and how that might be impacted by vaccination, we encourage you to talk with your primary care provider, who knows your conditions and your history and can advise you personally. If you do not have a primary care provider, you can find one here.

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, so we have answered some of your most frequently asked ones. 

COVID-19 Safety

The safety of our patients, Associates and physicians is our top priority. That’s why we successfully practice infection prevention every day. To keep all who enter our facilities safe during COVID-19 we have added the following precautions:

  • Limiting visitors
  • Screening everyone who comes through our doors
  • Isolating COVID-19 patients to one area of the facility
  • Random temperature checks for Associates
  • Requiring everyone on our campuses to wear masks
  • Using telemedicine to treat active COVID-19 patients, so their caregivers and support staff limit the number of times they enter their rooms

We’re in this Together

This may be an unprecedented time, but we have experienced many of these since CHRISTUS was founded 154 years ago. In fact, the first three Sisters who started our ministry in Galveston faced an epidemic of Yellow Fever within the first six months of opening the very first hospital.

Epidemics and tragedies have been part of our history, and so too has the resolve, after each of those challenges, to move on in love and service to those in need. We stand today in a rich history that gives us confidence that, with God’s help, we can do the same.

We are answering the call to help our community – today and tomorrow. In all that we do, we are devoted to keeping you, your families, our caregivers and our Associates safe. And we are here when you need care. We are ready.
