The YWCA in El Paso is doing its part to help get people in the Borderland vaccinated by offering free childcare while people receive their COVID-19 shot.

There are many options for El Pasoans who want to get their COVID-19 shot, whether through a neighborhood pharmacy, doctor's office, or almost anywhere. But many El Pasoans might be having difficulty finding the time to get vaccinated, or finding adequate childcare so they can go and get poked worry-free.

The YMCA of El Paso wants to help make it easier for parents to go and get vaccinated and not have to worry about finding a babysitter so the YMCA is offering free drop-in childcare services.

Parents and caregivers can bring their little ones to one of the 3 YMCA locations in El Paso Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The 3 YMCA is located at:

  • Fred and Maria Loya Family YMCA at 2044 Trawood Drive
  • Westside Family YMCA at 7145 North Mesa on the westside
  • YWCA El Paso Del Norte Region at 201 East Main Street
Parents fill out paperwork and then leave their child with staff at the YMCA will supervise the child until they return from their appointment.
