UT Tyler nursing students receive COVID-19 vaccine

Tyler Junior College nursing student David Conway gives a COVID-19 vaccine to UT Tyler nursing student Deangela Godbolt on Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2021 at Christus Trinity Mother Frances Hospital in Tyler.

Christus Good Shepherd Health System, which runs a COVID vaccination hub in Longview, has added 3,500 new appointments for those in the 1A or 1B categories.

The appointments are set to take place on March 14.

The vaccinations are occurring by appointment only — walk-in and waitlist appointments are not available. Patients should make an appointment by visiting vaccinate.christushealth.org and answering the questions in the chat box on the right of the screen.

Patients may also call the following dedicated phone line for information and registration for a vaccination appointment at this hub vaccination clinic: (877) 335-5746.

For those who are able to make an appointment, Christus Good Shepherd is asking them to follow clinical operational guidelines:

  • Arrive no more than 15 minutes early and remain in your vehicle until 5 minutes before your appointment time.
  • Only those being vaccinated may attend the clinic, except for those who need assistance. Those who cannot come alone to their appointment may bring one essential visitor.
  • Wear loose fitting clothes, for ease in accessing your shoulder to administer the vaccine.
  • Masks are required. Please bring your own mask.
