These messages are a technical error. We are only listing the appointment dates/times that we know to be made in error. If you have an appointment for one of these dates/times, then you should not come to this site at this scheduled date/time. Rather you need to call (832) 393-4220, press "1" and then "5" to speak with one of their scheduling representatives. As the vaccine site, Bayou City Event Center, is only trying to help communicate this message in advance and does not have the ability to change or make vaccine appointments. Although, we would love to see everyone here, all appointments must be made through the Houston Health Department only.
