At-home vaccinations also available as Coastal Bend once again a COVID hot spot

Free COVID-19 tests and vaccinations, including at-home vaccines, are available in Corpus Christi as officials encourage more people to get the shots and wear masks to protect themselves from the spread of the virus. The Coastal Bend is in the middle of a surge in COVID-19 cases, leaving hospitals without enough beds and staff to properly handle the rising number of cases.

The first and second doses of both the Moderna and the Pfizer vaccine are being provided, with children ages 12 and older receiving the Pfizer. The Moderna vaccine is available for anyone over the age of 18. Individuals aged 12 through 17 must have verbal or written parental consent to receive a Pfizer vaccination.

The City of Corpus Christi recommends that residents make a reservation via a cell phone, then screenshot the QR code at the end of registration, or if using a home computer, print the code. You can also pre-register by calling 361-826-7200, and choose option 2.

Those choosing the phone method will need to write their name, date of birth, and phone number and place it in the windshield if going to a drive-thru vaccination site.

Potentially, the online pre-registration will become full, and individuals will not be able to register until additional vaccines become available. Just keep trying, officials said.
