According to the release, vaccinations at any of Kelsey-Seybold Clinic's 26 Greater Houston-area locations are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. by appointment only at no cost to the individual or family.


Those who want to receive the Pfizer vaccine—the only vaccine currently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for patients age 16 and older—can schedule an appointment at one of the following locations:

The Moderna vaccine is also being offered at several Kelsey-Seybold Clinic locations across the Greater Houston area. Additionally, per guidance from the FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the health care provider has paused administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the release states.
