Texas Restaurant Association Takes the Lead on Vaccinations

The Texas Restaurant Association and other groups have teamed up for a multi-city initiative to vaccinate tens of thousands of hospitality workers across the state. The vaccine drive will kick off in Houston today and tomorrow with a clinic at the Smart Financial Centre. The clinic will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Memorial Hermann Health System will serve as the vaccine administrator with support given by Fertitta Entertainment and the Houston Rockets. Memorial Hermann will administer approximately 12,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine (6,000 per day) to individuals ages 16 and older.

Vaccine supply is limited so appointments will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and walk-ins will not be accommodated. Individuals must present photo identification that matches the name and date of birth on the appointment confirmation.

The next hospitality vaccine clinic will take place in San Antonio on April 27 and 28 at the Wonderland of the Americas shopping center. University Health System will administer 6,000 doses (3,000 per day) of the Pfizer vaccine. The clinic will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 7:45 p.m.
