CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Do you know a senior or homebound individual in need of a first dose COVID-19 vaccination? The Corpus Christi Fire Department (CCFD) will open its Save Our Seniors (SOS) pre-registration hotline today at 12 p.m. for 500 patrons.
The hotline number is 1-888-728-0018 and is available in English and Spanish. Seniors and individuals who are homebound are invited to register for this program. 500 first dose vaccinations will be administered in the Corpus Christi city limits on Monday, March 29, Tuesday, March 30 and Wednesday, March 31.

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.
