Where to get the COVID-19 vaccine in Amarillo

Coronavirus

AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — With COVID-19 case numbers on the rise in the High Plains, local health officials say that vaccination is the best strategy to stop the spread of the virus.

As of July 8, 134,000 Moderna vaccines and 1,250 Pfizer vaccines had been given out in the city of Amarillo with 35% of Potter County vaccinated and 37% of Randall County vaccinated.

Chief Medical Officer at Northwest Texas Hospital Dr. Brian Weis said that number is disappointing as that is the ultimate defense against the virus.

“The vaccines are the answer, they are a way of preventing this guy from causing a surge again. So I really wish people would strongly consider getting the vaccine at this point since we might be facing wave number three unfortunately of a COVID-19 variant,” said Dr. Weis.

The next question, however – where are COVID-19 vaccines available in the Amarillo area? Here is a list of current operation hours and locations for the Public Health Department’s vaccination clinics.
