CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Beginning Thursday, August 12, a partnership between Mayor Paulette M. Guajardo and the City of Corpus Christi Fire Department (CCFD) will offer in-home COVID-19 vaccinations. Individuals must be 12 years of age or older to receive the vaccine. The vaccines available will be Moderna or Pfizer and will be administered by CCFD.

Mayor Guajardo made the announcement during today’s weekly COVID briefing held at City Council Chambers. This program is modeled after the Save Our Seniors Program that provided vaccinations to homebound seniors.

“With COVID cases rising, it is imperative that we make vaccines readily available for whoever wants them,” says Mayor Paulette M. Guajardo. “That means, if we must go to your home to give you the vaccine, then we will do that. We are in this together.”

Starting Thursday, August 12, from 7:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M., residents seeking in-home vaccinations can call the City of Corpus Christi Call Center at 826-CITY (2489) to register. There is no cost for the vaccinations.
