Killeen testing site

A worker takes information from individuals about to go through Killeen's COVID-19 testing and vaccination site.

Killeen’s drive-thru COVID-19 vaccines and tests continue this Wednesday through Friday, next Wednesday and Thursday.

The City of Killeen will offer free COVID-19 vaccines and tests at a drive-thru COVID-19 site again this Wednesday, Oct. 6 through Friday, Oct. 8 this week, as well as next Wednesday, Oct. 13 and Thursday, Oct 14, according to a news release. The site will take place at the Killeen Special Events Center from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“Please know that vaccines and tests are available only while supplies last for each day,” Killeen spokeswoman Janell Ford said in a news release. “Last week, during the dates of Sept. 29 – Oct. 1, there were 180 vaccines administered and 469 tests given. There were 49 positive cases.”

No appointments are required for the vaccines or tests, but a phone number and/or e-mail address is required. Only the Pfizer vaccine is available and booster shots are only available for those who are immunocompromised with a doctor’s note. Vaccines are available to those who are at least 12 years old. Fifteen minute rapid tests are available to all ages with parental supervision and permission. Participants will receive results by text and/or e-mail.

The Killeen Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management partnered with the Texas Division of Emergency Management and the Texas Military Department beginning Aug. 19, soon after the Bell County Public Health District raised its COVID-19 threat level to the highest tier-- Level 1-- which is severe, uncontrolled community transmission.

As a reminder, residents are asked to text their zip code to GETVAX (438829) for a list of nearby locations to receive a COVID-19 vaccine shot. Each person is also sent information about free childcare and getting a ride to a vaccination location. Residents may also call the connected hotline at 1-800-232-0233 for the same information.
