To better accommodate visitors and vendors at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, Pima County is changing the location and hours of operation of its vaccine clinic at the Tucson Convention Center, 260 S. Church Ave.
Effective Feb. 1-13, vaccines will be offered in the Coconino Conference Room (entrance is on north side of ticket office) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
This is a walk-up clinic with no registration necessary. Free parking will be available in Lot A as space permits.
Vaccines have been available in the east lobby of the Convention Center since Dec. 1. In addition to COVID-19 shots, this clinic also will offer flu shots. As always with Pima County vaccination clinics, shots are free and available to anyone who is eligible. Identification is not required, but people should bring their vaccine cards.
The TCC clinic can provide all three authorized vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson) to all eligible age groups, including Pfizer doses for children 5 to 11 years old. More information about vaccines and clinic locations can be found at pima.gov/covid19vaccine.
“We want a safe and healthy Gem Show for all in attendance. That means masking, distancing, and most important—being vaccinated against COVID-19,” said Dr. Theresa Cullen, director of the Pima County Health Department. “Our commitment is to make vaccinations available to everyone, including our visitors.”
The County also is sponsoring multiple locations offering free COVID-19 testing. Find all locations with days and hours of operation at pima.gov/covid19testing.
