VACCINE ALLOCATION UPDATE:  March 1, 2021

Vaccine Update:

So far, our county has received 3,500 first round doses. Second round doses are distributed automatically. This week the Medina County Health Unit will be receiving 300 COVID-19 Moderna vaccines, see Week 12 Vaccine Allocations. Hopefully, our shipment comes in today and you will be able to register online.   

No other local providers are scheduled to receive vaccine this week. At this time, our county still has limited supply and should concentrate on the Phase 1A and Phase 1B groups https://dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/immunize/vaccine.aspx.  Bigger hubs in Uvalde and Bexar County are able to accommodate large allocations of vaccine and therefore they may be opening up to Phase 1C which would include teachers and other essential workers.  The County will move into this phase as soon as doses allocated to our county increase.  The Health Unit plans to order the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19  vaccine which is a one dose shot.  As soon as this becomes available to us we are excited to have another vaccine to administer to reach more people. Currently there are 3 vaccines in the US that now have (EAU) Emergency Authorization Use approval. The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are a 2 dose  series and are not interchangeable. So, if you received a Moderna vaccine for round 1, you need to receive Moderna vaccine for round 2. see  vaccine hub providers

Reminders for those who have received their COVID-19 vaccine and for everyone, continue to wear a mask to protect yourself and others. Stay at least 6 feet apart from others that don’t live with you and avoid crowds. Wash and sanitize your hands often and properly. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces often.
