SIU members and their families can register for the May 3 event HERE.
Seafarers and their family members who haven’t been vaccinated against COVID-19 are invited to the hiring hall in Houston for a free vaccination drive on May 3 (a Monday) from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Vaccines will be provided by United Memorial Medical Center (UMMC), in partnership with Harris County Precinct 2 and the SIU.
Advance registration is not required (but is available), and neither is insurance. Screeners will be on site to help people sign up (it should be a quick process).
UMMC will offer either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, or both. A follow-up event for the second round of vaccinations is scheduled for May 24, also at the Houston hall.
Participants must be at least 18 years old and must not have had COVID-19 within the last 90 days prior to May 3.
Food and drink will be provided.
