The Northeast Texas Public Health District hosts a drive-thru COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Harvey Convention Center in Tyler in January. George Roberts, NET Health CEO, talks with a vaccine patient as they wait in line.

People can set up their first COVID-19 vaccine appointment at the Northeast Texas Public Health District clinic at Harvey Convention Center next week.

Those over the age of 16 can make an appointment for their first Pfizer vaccine at the convention center either April 8, 9 or 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

On this webpage, anyone can view the available appointment times to receive your first or your second Pfizer vaccine.”

NET Health clinics will be closed during the Easter weekend for Friday and Saturday.
