Adolescents Now Eligible

Published

on

CDC Recommends Use of Pfizer Vaccine in Adolescents, 12 to 15 Years Old. Vaccines for this age group began Friday, May 14 at Alamodome with parental consent.

Adolescents, ages 12 to 15, are now eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine to help protect against COVID-19 after the CDC endorsed vaccination on May 12 for this age group.

Upon this recommendation, Metro Health will offer the Pfizer vaccine to adolescents beginning Friday, May 14 at the Alamodome. Consent from a parent or legal guardian is required for 12- to 15-year-olds to be vaccinated, said Dr. Anita Kurian, Assistant Director of Metro Health.

“We encourage parents to have their 12- to 15-year-olds get the Pfizer vaccine to help protect them against the coronavirus, especially as end of school approaches and adolescents will want to be among their friends and will be going on vacation with their families,” Dr. Kurian said. “Anything we can do to get more people, especially this age group, vaccinated will help bring us closer to ending the pandemic.”

Dr. Kurian added that a photo ID for adolescents is preferred but is not required.

As a reminder, people 12 and up can get vaccinated without an appointment at the Alamodome drive-through clinic from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. It is important to note that only locations providing the Pfizer vaccine can administer it to 12- to 18-year-olds.

The official CDC recommendation came after the FDA on Monday authorized emergency use of the Pfizer vaccine for 12- to 15-year-olds to help end the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the CDC website. Read the CDC’s official statement here.

This is an additional method to inform the community when new appointments are available.

Drive-up Option Now Open

Published

on

Alamodome Vaccine Clinic drive-up option now open from 2-5 p.m. without appointments 

SAN ANTONIO (April 19, 2021) – People 16 years and up, can now get a COVID-19 vaccination without an appointment from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m., Tuesdays – Saturdays at the drive-through vaccination site at the Alamodome. 

“Now that the supply has caught up with the demand, we want to make getting your COVID-19 vaccination as easy as possible,” said Dr. Colleen Bridger. “We recognize that for some people it is easier to just pop in rather than make an appointment and we wanted to accommodate that preference.”  

Over 779,687 people in Bexar county have received at least one dose (that includes the DOD and VA) and we have surpassed 1 million doses administered. “San Antonio continues to exceed both state and national averages in the number of people vaccinated,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg. “I’m proud of the way San Antonians have come together during this pandemic and stayed the course. Practicing social distancing, good hygiene, wearing masks and getting vaccinated is making a difference. I encourage all eligible persons to get vaccinated.”

The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District continues to work with state and local partners to distribute COVID-19 vaccines to critical populations, within the phases designated by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).

30,000 first dose Pfizer vaccine appointments will be available starting tomorrow, Thursday, March 25th at 7 p.m. on the Metro Health COVID-19 vaccine registration website. Appointments available will be from April 6th to May 1st.

The 311 Customer Service COVID Hotline is allocated appointments to ensure residents without internet access can book their appointments by phone. The Hotline operating hours are Monday-Friday, 8a.m.- 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.


Immunizations with a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is a critical component of the strategy to reduce COVID-19-related illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths and to help restore community and societal functioning. The goal is to have enough COVID-19 vaccine for all people who wish to be vaccinated. However, currently there continues to be limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine. 
 

Individuals who decide to opt-in to the City of San Antonio’s text alert system, can text VACCINE to 55000 or in Spanish VACUNA to 55000. By signing up they will receive a text notifying them of locations that have appointments available. Opting to this text alert system will not sign you up for a vaccine or add you on a wait list.
