Medical Center Health System provides update on Monday appointments for booster shots

The clinics will be open, but are emphasizing safety during these weather conditions.

ODESSA, Texas — Medical Center Health System is letting the public know that the clinics for the COVID-19 booster shots will remain open on February 15.

The hospital worked to call people through Sunday evening to ask if they would like to reschedule any Monday appointments or keep it.

Officials are emphasizing safety during this winter weather, honored the appointments that people have made if they wish to keep them.

They also say they have made arrangements for the employees to stay safe and for people to assist patients to and from their car during the weather.

Additionally, officials say anyone who has the date of Feb. 14 to Feb. 19 listed on their vaccination card for their booster shot but does not have an appointment already scheduled, they can come in Monday to get their shot if they feel comfortable venturing out on the roads.

The Urgent Care clinics for the booster shots will remain open until 8:30 p.m. Again, this is only for those who received a vaccination card from Ratliff with the date range of Feb. 14-19.

MCH staff says they could have had as many as 800 appointments scheduled, however several appointments canceled due to the weather. 

A decision on whether Tuesday's appointments will be potentially rescheduled could be made on Monday.

Additionally, because the weather has delayed the shipment of vaccines, the Wednesday vaccination clinic at Ratliff will be canceled. The clinic will resume on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

Next week the clinic is scheduled to be on Wednesday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

If you still need to schedule an appointment for your booster shot, you can call
432-640-2747. Again, MCH asks the public not to call this number to reschedule the appointment and instead wait for the clinic workers to call you.
