TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Did you receive your first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on February 11, 12 or 13 at Harvey Convention Center in Tyler? If so, you’re eligible and invited to get your second dose this weekend beginning Friday.

NET Health’s “second dose” clinic for the Pfizer vaccine will take place on Friday and Saturday at Harvey Convention Center in Tyler. However, please note, only persons eligible for their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine will be admitted.

Persons without an appointment can arrive on either day but will need to display their “CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card” upon arrival, clearly showing the first Pfizer vaccine was given on any day before Valentine’s Day.

The second Pfizer vaccine still provides effective potency even if more than 21 days have passed since the first Pfizer vaccine, NET Health said.

“After you have received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine, you are still advised to continue practicing the evidence-based COVID-19 safety protocols,” said George Roberts, NET Health CEO. “These protocols include wearing a mask, social distancing, staying home when you are ill, and avoiding gatherings with persons outside of your immediate household.”

To enroll into our waiting list, persons must be (1) over the age of 65, or (2) working in a profession that qualifies you as being Tier 1A, (3) teachers and employees of a pre-primary, primary, or secondary educational institution, or (4) over the age of 18 with a qualifying health condition that have been identified by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).

“Anyone interested in receiving their first COVID vaccine at the Harvey Convention Center is asked to first register into our waiting list and await receiving contact from NET Health to make an appointment before traveling to the Harvey Convention Center,” said Roberts. “Please sign up for the NET Health COVID-19 waiting list by visiting NETHealthCOVID19.org and selecting the “Vaccine Updates” link. This webpage provides access for anyone to enroll into waiting lists to receive your official invitation to make an appointment to receive your vaccine.

NET Health will continue to schedule appointments for COVID Vaccine Clinics in future weeks and invitations to make an appointment will be provided to persons on our waiting lists who enrolled into our waiting lists first. Appointments are only created based upon our available supply of COVID vaccines and upon the date that our NET Health Immunizations Department physically receives more doses of COVID vaccines.
