Attendees will be pre-screened and temperature checked prior to pre-registration.

For onsite registration, attendees will be staged at the McAllen Performing Arts Center parking lot and processed beginning at 9 a.m.

Tickets will be issued only to registrants that fall under the 1A/1B/1C criteria and school and licensed child care personnel. Only one ticket per qualified registrant will be issued. Expect a queue time of up to two hours for ticket distribution.

  • Bring ID and proof of medical condition (current medication, a prescription from their doctor)
  • Bring clearance letter from their physician
  • Work ID or other proof of employment
  • People are encouraged to bring water and snacks
  • There could be periods of waiting and sitting in your vehicle
  • Children 18 and under should not be in the clinic
  • Those seeking vaccines with mobility concerns may bring one person to help them

Vaccines will be administered by McAllen I.S.D. school nurses and Hidalgo County Health and Human Services Department nurses.
