SAN ANTONIO (January 17, 2021) – The shipment of COVID-19 vaccines to supply Monday’s scheduled appointments has been delayed from the manufacturer, Pfizer. As a result, all appointments scheduled for Monday will be rescheduled for Wednesday, January 20, at the same times, contingent upon delivery of the doses. 
“We are sorry for the inconvenience, but the doses that have been allocated to us by the state have not been shipped to us from the manufacturer,” said Dr. Colleen Bridger, Assistant City Manager. “We are hopeful that the shipment will arrive in the next 24-48 hours, allowing us to proceed with the vaccinations on Wednesday. We ask for your continued patience.”
Individuals who scheduled an appointment for Monday will receive further communication through the email address or phone number provided with their registration. Volunteers scheduled for Monday’s clinic will also be notified by Metro Health.
