The shipment of COVID-19 vaccines to supply tomorrow’s scheduled second dose appointments at the Alamodome has been delayed from the Texas State Health Department. As a result, all appointments scheduled for tomorrow thru Thursday, February 4th will be rescheduled for February 16th-18th at the same times.
“We are sorry for the inconvenience, but the doses that have been allocated to us by the state have not arrived at this time,” said Dr. Anita Kurian Assistant Director of Communicable Diseases at Metro Health. “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 dates will also receive further communication through the email address or phone number provided with their registration.
