City of El Paso opens vaccine ‘pop-ups’ to get more shots in arms

EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso health officials opened two vaccine "pop-up" clinics Saturday to help vaccinate people that have yet to get their first dose.

The two sites were located at the downtown farmer's market and the the Beast Urban Park in far East El Paso and were open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Health officials at the downtown site were hoping to vaccinate 200 people by the end of the day. People had a choice of either the one-shot Johnson and Johnson vaccine or the Moderna vaccine.

Gregg Suber was able to get his shot at the farmer's market.

“This right here is super convenient. I mean this is perfect. Real easy and real simple," Suber explained.

Suber said he had contracted the virus back in December and that getting the shot Saturday was a positive.

"Very relieving,” he said with a smile.
