SAN ANTONIO (February 22, 2021) – The shipment of COVID-19 vaccines to supply tomorrow’s scheduled appointments has been delayed. As a result, all appointments scheduled for tomorrow Tuesday, February 23rd will be rescheduled for Thursday, February 25that the same times.
“Due to last week’s winter weather, vaccine shipments across the United States have been delayed,” said Dr. Colleen Bridger, Assistant City Manager. “We understand that some may be concerned about the extended time between their second dose but we are within CDC guidelines to ensure the vaccine will still work with no issues. Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines may be scheduled for administration up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose.”
Individuals who are scheduled for the stated date will receive further communication through the email address or phone number provided with their registration. If there is a further delivery delay, we will reschedule as needed to try not to affect other scheduled appointments.
