HOUSTON - The Houston Health Department will open two new drive through COVID-19 vaccination sites next week to meet increased demand prompted by its new incentive program.

The program provides $100 gift cards for first doses and $50 gift cards for second doses administered at eligible health department sites within qualifying timeframes.

A new site at PlazAmericas, located at 7500 Bellaire Blvd. in Southwest Houston, will open Monday, August 30. The site, a partnership with United Memorial Medical Center, will operate Mondays through Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
