TYLER – In observance of the New Year Holiday, NET Health’s COVID Vaccine Clinic at the Majesty Event Center will be closed on Thursday through Monday, Dec. 30-Jan. 3.

Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 4, the NET Health COVID Vaccine Clinic will relocate to 815 N. Spring St. in Tyler, directly behind NET Health's main offices at 815 N. Broadway Ave. and will resume its usual operation from 8:30 a.m. to 4:40 p.m. Monday through Friday, according to officials.

COVID-19 vaccines

NET Health continues to encourage anyone who has yet to become vaccinated to start their COVID vaccine series as soon as possible.

“Vaccination remains the best strategy to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities,” said NET Health CEO George Roberts. “All COVID-19 vaccines may be co-administered with other vaccines, including the seasonal influenza vaccine, during the same visit.”

Anyone over the age of 18 years and older can receive the Pfizer vaccine or the Moderna vaccine, while individuals between the ages of 5 and 17 can only receive the 2-Dose Pfizer vaccine.

Parents and guardians of children who are now eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine should consult a healthcare provider if they have questions about the benefits and risks of their children receiving the COVID vaccine, the release noted.

Booster doses

The CDC endorsed booster doses for anyone age 18 years and older to receive a booster dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at least six months after their second dose, as well as booster doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for adolescents age 16 or age 17 who received their second Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago.

If anyone has questions about their risks from COVID-19 and whether a booster dose is beneficial, it is advised they consult their primary healthcare provider.
