Celebrate spring with the vaccine
Wednesday, March 16, 2022 by Tai Moses
Even though the pandemic is ebbing and no nasty new variants have popped up to frighten us back into quarantine, it’s still a good – no, a great – idea to get vaccinated. And getting the Covid-19 vaccine couldn’t be easier. Travis County, Austin Public Health and their community partners continue to host a variety of free, convenient vaccine distribution events every week. No appointments are necessary. Simply check out the handy online calendar and map to find the date, time and location of the nearest vaccine event. Austin Public Health sites offer the Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, including third doses for the immunocompromised and booster shots. If you’re receiving your second or third dose or booster, bring your CDC vaccination card so it can be updated. If you’re still on the fence about getting the vaccine, jump off! It’s one of the best decisions you’ll ever make, both for your own health and for the health of your fellow human beings.
