“The Hays County Office of Emergency Management was able to coordinate additional no-appointment COVID-19 vaccine clinics,” said Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra. “Later hours may offer more flexibility for those in our community who might have challenges in getting to a clinic by 8 p.m.”
He added that the selected locations are familiar to many residents already and may offer some level of comfort and trust in getting the vaccine.
Several no-appointment clinics are planned for the following dates and locations:
April 30 (Friday) – Sinai Pentecostal Church, 208 Laredo St., San Marcos
May 4 (Tuesday) - Santa Cruz Church, 1100 Main St., Buda
May 13 (Thursday) - Dunbar Recreation Center, 801 Martin Luther King Dr., San Marcos
Judge Becerra said his office is working to coordinate a clinic at St. Anthony's Church, 801 Burleson St. in Kyle and that information will be released as soon as the details are confirmed.
Anyone who wants a Moderna 1st dose vaccine can simply show up at one of the above locations during the listed times. Those individuals must be able to return in four weeks for the 2nd dose.
The Moderna clinics are separate from the Hays County Local Health Department clinics and they are not using doses allocated to the health department by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
As a reminder, 1st dose Pfizer clinics are being held at Live Oak Community Clinic at 401 Broadway in San Marcos on May 3 and 4; no appointment is needed.
