COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - The El Paso County Public Health is holding several mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics across the city.

Friday morning, they set up the mobile vaccine van at Harrison High School. They will reportedly be in the area until 2 p.m Friday.

Starting at 5 p.m. the mobile vaccination van will be at Acacia Park giving out Pfizer vaccines. The health department says this is part of the equity campaign, getting more vaccines to those they would not normally be able to reach.

“We want our community to be protected and get vaccinated, and we want to make it as easy as possible to do so. With the mobile vaccination vans, we are reducing barriers and meeting people where they are, in communities where they live, work and play,” said Susan Wheelan, director of El Paso County Public Health. “We are grateful for the continued collaboration with the Downtown Partnership to pair community events and vaccinations to better serve our residents.”

This event will wrap up around 9 p.m. Friday.

COVID-19 vaccinations are free and walk-ins are welcome for anyone 16 and older. If you would like to sign up fo ran appointment, you can do so here.
