LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) - Covenant Children’s is please to once again partner with the South Plains Mall to provide the COVID-19 vaccine our community members by opening a vaccine clinic focused specifically on kids.

Covenant Children’s will offer the Moderna vaccine for children aged 6 months to 5 years and the Pfizer vaccine for children 5 years and up.
The Covenant Children’s clinic will be hosted at South Plains Mall on the south end near JCPenney, across from H&M.
