VACCINE INFORMATION

About the Vaccines

Information gathered in large-scale clinical trials and thoroughly reviewed by scientists at the FDA shows that the COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. You can view the FDA’s fact sheets for recipients and caregivers: Pfizer | Moderna Johnson & Johnson

Like the two-dose vaccines for Pfizer and Moderna, the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine is extremely effective at preventing severe disease, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19. The two-dose Pfizer vaccine is available to anyone over the age of 12. The two-dose Moderna vaccine and single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine are available to anyone over the age of 18. Booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccines are now available for eligible persons, as well.

Pfizer Pediatric COVID-19 Vaccine

Texas is scheduled to begin receiving 1.3 million doses of the Pfizer Pediatric COVID-19 Vaccine beginning in early November 2021. The pediatric vaccine has been given emergency use authorization by the Food and Drug Administration for use in children ages 5-11.

The pediatric vaccine comes in a different formulation from the vaccine approved for adults, so it is important to seek out providers who have received the pediatric vaccine when getting children in this age group vaccinated. The Texas Department of State Health Services recommends making an appointment or checking with the provider before going to get vaccinated.

Contact your primary care physician, preferred pharmacy, Boerne H-E-B Plus!, Walmart, Walgreens, or My Urgent Care Boerne on River Road to schedule an appointment for the Pfizer Pediatric COVID-19 Vaccine as it becomes available.

Even before Kendall County recorded its first COVID-19 case in mid-March 2020, local leaders discussed how to best respond to an ever-changing situation.
