SOS Hotline Opens Friday at Noon for Vaccination Pre-registration
500 Homebound Seniors to Receive First Dose Vaccinations beginning Monday, March 22
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Corpus Christi Fire Department (CCFD) will open its Save Our Seniors (SOS) pre-registration hotline on Friday, March 19 at 12 p.m. for 500 first dose vaccinations.
The hotline pre-registration number is 1-888-728-0018 and is available in English and Spanish. Seniors who are homebound and qualify for the vaccine in Phase 1A, 1B and 1C are invited to register for this program. 500 first dose vaccinations will be administered to homebound residents living in the Corpus Christi city limits on Monday, March 22, Tuesday, March 23 and Wednesday, March 24. The vaccine administered will be Moderna.
A homebound senior is identified as a patron who is unable to leave their home without difficulty. It is usually due to advanced age, illness, or disability.
The SOS program will continue to offer vaccinations as vaccines become available.
Last week, the SOS program hit a significant milestone fully vaccinating over 2,000 senior citizens and homebound residents throughout the city. The SOS program recently received nationwide notoriety after Governor Greg Abbott visited a Corpus Christi Fire Station in February and met with Mayor Paulette M. Guajardo and Fire Chief Robert Rocha to announce it would become a model for the State of Texas.
"The SOS hotline opening up is essential to continuing to vaccinate our most vulnerable populations, our senior citizens and the homebound. I am so grateful for our teamwork," Mayor Paulette M. Guajardo said.
