ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - Medical Center Health System’s booster shot drive-thru clinic at Ratliff Stadium opened Tuesday.

Booster shots will be available for those who received their first COVID-19 vaccine shots at Ratliff Stadium between January 24 and February 10.

The clinic will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. Friday’s clinic has been canceled as MCH expects to finish the outstanding booster shots on Thursday.

You do not need to schedule an appointment or register.

Anyone who can’t make these dates or received their first vaccine dose at Ratliff Stadium on or after February 24 will receive their booster shots from ORMC later this month. The following comes from ORMC:

We are working with MCH to transition the process of second dose vaccines. Starting this week, for any person receiving their first dose vaccine at MCH, their second dose will be scheduled at ORMC 3 weeks later. This means, ORMC will start administering second doses from March 15 onwards. These shots will be done either at the Community Health Center or at a Complete Care Clinic. The scheduling is automatic, and each individual will get an email with date, time and location. There is no need to call for the appointment. For those that don’t provide an email, phone calls will be made.

As of this week, ORMC is only administering the first doses of the Pfizer vaccine on Wednesday, March 3 and Friday, March 5 by appointment only. You can register for a dose by calling (432) 582-8549.
