SAN ANTONIO (January 9, 2021) – Registration for the City’s no-cost COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the Alamodome is full. The 9,000 available slots next week were taken within six minutes of registration opening. There were more than 11,000 people on the registration website when it opened at 9 a.m. The COVID19.sanantonio.gov website and 311 experienced high volumes of use but withstood the traffic.
“I want to thank the community for their patience as the City works with our State partners to make more vaccine available. The registration system worked as designed, but there is far greater demand than available supply at this time. When we receive more doses from the State of Texas, we will have more appointments available in the coming days and weeks, and we will keep the public informed about registration opportunities,” said Dr. Colleen Bridger, Assistant City Manager.
At this time, the Alamodome location will be able to provide an approximate 1,500 vaccines per day. As appointments become available, the City will share information on its social media pages and through the news media.
Walk-ins will not be accepted.
