SAN ANTONIO (January 14, 2022) - In conjunction with the San Antonio Martin Luther King Jr. Commission, Metro Health will host a COVID-19 vaccine and testing pop-up clinic from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, January 17 at the Davis-Scott Family YMCA, 1213 Iowa St. 78203. No appointment is needed.

"San Antonio is home to one of the largest Martin Luther King Jr. marches in the nation. While the pandemic has prevented us from gathering in person to honor Dr. King's legacy, our commitment to the community remains," said City Manager Erik Walsh. "Throughout this entire response, we've focused on equity – making sure vaccines and testing are where they are most needed. I want to thank the MLK Commission for their tireless work to honor Dr. King, no matter how trying these times are. I encourage any residents, who need to get vaccinated or tested, to join us at this pop-up event."

"The MLK Commission is partnering with the City of San Antonio to host this vaccine and testing pop-up clinic as part of efforts to get our residents vaccinated so that they and their loved ones are protected from COVID-19," said MLK Commission Chair Renee Watson.
