Comal County Ends Mass COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics
Comal County said today it will end mass COVID-19-vaccine clinics and let its Public Health Department manage future vaccinations by appointment.
The announcement follows 23 mass-vaccination clinics at which more than 109,000 doses were administered, Public Health Director Cheryl Fraser said.
“With the help of hundreds of community volunteers, the City of New Braunfels and a countless number of city and county employees, our mass vaccine clinics have made it possible to vaccinate tens of thousands of people in our community,” she said. “The newest figures show that about 40% of Comal County residents, 16 and older, are now fully vaccinated and I’m very proud of the work we’ve accomplished.”
The final mass vaccine clinic is scheduled for Wednesday, May 19. A final second-dose clinic is set for Tuesday, June 15. Both clinics run from 8 am – 2 pm at the New Braunfels Convention Center located at 375 S. Castell.
County Judge Sherman Krause said 50 other providers in Comal County now administer COVID-19 vaccines as well.
“That makes it possible for us to begin the transition away from mass clinics and return vaccine efforts to our Public Health Department,” he said.
