Comal County, H-E-B Run Out of COVID-19 Vaccines, Brookshire Brothers Receives Allotment
Comal County is out of COVID-19 vaccinations, county Public Information Officer Cary Zayas said in a press release today.
The county used its full allotment of Moderna’s COVID-19 during a week of scheduled vaccinations. There is no word yet on when more vaccines are expected.
“Public Health has administered all COVID-19 vaccine allotted by the state and is currently out,” Public Health Director Cheryl Fraser said. “Please go to our county website to find information on who qualifies for the vaccine at this time as well as other locations that still have available vaccinations in Comal County.”
The county suggests visiting this state site for a list of vaccine providers in Comal County and across the state.
On Sunday, grocer H-E-B announced its initial allocation of COVID-19 vaccines was already distributed or scheduled to be administered.
“We are awaiting another allocation of vaccine from the state of Texas so we can continue to vaccinate healthcare providers as well as begin offering vaccine to those in Phase IB,” the company said in a statement.
H-E-B said it will activate a scheduler tool on its website once supplies arrive.
Brookshire Brothers said today that its pharmacies in rural Texas received their allotments of the COVID-19 today “and began the massive undertaking of distributing it to those most at risk.”
“Our pharmacists are diligently working to handle the enormous demands from people wanting to receive the COVID-19 vaccination,” said Laura Edmundson, director of Clinical Pharmacy Programs for the grocery store chain.
“We are currently seeking out members of the health care worker population and have begun scheduling appointments for those who are at the highest risk for severe illness from COVID-19. The transition between the groups will likely vary between Brookshire Brothers locations,” she said.
