According to County data and recent PdNHF focus groups, men ages 18-50 years old in El Paso are among the least vaccinated and least inclined to get vaccinated in the region. With support from the County of El Paso, a pop-up vaccine initiative was launched in August 2021 to make it easier for this harder-to-reach group to get the vaccine and Reduce the Risk of COVID-19. More than 300 vaccines have been administered at local high schools, movie theaters, apartment complexes, and events to date, with thousands more people vaccinated in the 79936, 79938, 79924, and 79912 zip codes as a result of the promotional efforts.
Special thanks to our vaccination partners Texas Tech, American Heart Association, Texas Department of State Health Services, University Medical Center, Centro San Vicente, Emergency District #2, and Immunize El Paso.
