AUSTIN (KXAN) — Starting Friday through Sunday, there will be several opportunities to get vaccinated for COVID-19 in the Austin-Travis County area, and you could even get a $50 gift card in the process.

Appointments and/or registration are not necessary for this weekend’s popup clinics, according to Austin Public Health.

The health department said it’s launching its pilot incentive program this week, and it will be giving out $50 H-E-B gift cards to people who get a shot at one of its vaccination locations. The pilot program is limited to 2,000 gift cards. Once all cards are given out, the program will end.

To be eligible for a gift card, APH said a person must:

  • Receive their first or second dose at an eligible APH location 
  • Complete an exit survey 
  • If under 18, individual must be accompanied by parent or guardian 
  • Not be a City of Austin employee or vendor 

APH said locations offering Moderna and Pfizer are giving out first and second doses. If you are getting a second dose, you need to bring your Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccination card so that it can be updated.

APH also reminded people attending the vaccination clinics to be aware of the hot temperatures expected over the weekend because you could be waiting in a long line outside.

Below are the dates, times and locations for the clinics this weekend. The locations designated as being run by APH are participating in the $50 gift card incentive, unless listed otherwise.
