Boerne, Kendall County resume signups for COVID-19 vaccine

Final COVID 19 vaccine event May 19 2021

Vaccine Hub - November 10, 2021

The next Boerne/Kendall County COVID-19 Vaccine Hub is scheduled for Wednesday, November 10, 2021, from 8 a.m. - noon at the Cana Ballroom at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church (202 W Kronkosky St. in Boerne). This is the rescheduled event that was originally planned for October 21, 2021.

If you signed up for the October 21 event and would like to move your appointment to the November 10 event, you can do so without having to register again. The City of Boerne will contact you via the email address or phone number you used to initially register to ask whether you would like to move your appointment. Once the City has confirmed with those who would like to move their registration, registration will be opened to anyone else who would like to register.

Register to Get a Vaccine

Those who had an appointment for the postponed October 21 vaccine event are being given priority registration for the November 10 event. Once the City has confirmed with those who elect to move their appointment to the November 10 vaccine event, a registration link will be added below for anyone else wanting to get a vaccine at the Boerne/Kendall County COVID-19 Vaccine Hub.

Moderna Vaccine / Booster

The Boerne/Kendall County COVID-19 Vaccine Hub will only administer the Moderna vaccine to eligible persons seeking a first dose, second dose, or third dose booster.

First and Second Dose

Currently, the first and second dose of the Moderna vaccine is available to anyone over the age of 18. The CDC recommends receiving the second dose at least 28 days after the first dose.

Booster

According to updated guidelines from the FDA and CDC on Oct. 20 and 21, 2021, the Moderna vaccine has been given emergency use authorization for a third dose booster for eligible persons. Additionally, the updated guidelines allow for individuals who received the two-dose Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines to choose which vaccine they want to receive for the third dose booster.

In other words, if you received the two-dose Moderna vaccine, you can choose to receive a third-dose booster of either the Moderna OR the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. If you received the two-dose Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, you can choose to receive a third-dose booster of either the Moderna OR the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

Note: The Moderna COVID-19 booster dose is half of the dose that is administered for the first and second doses.

For individuals who received a two-dose Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their second dose:

As has been the case throughout the COVID-19 vaccination effort, people may self-attest to having a health condition that qualifies them for a booster dose. It is recommended that people consult a healthcare provider if they have questions about their risks from COVID-19 and whether a booster dose would be beneficial for them.

What to Bring

Those seeking a vaccine are asked to bring a government issued identification card, if available. If you are receiving a second or third dose, please bring your vaccination card.

As a reminder, anyone who is unable to attend the city and county event and still needing the vaccine should contact their primary care physician, H-E-B, Walmart, CVS, or My Urgent Care Boerne on River Road to schedule an appointment that accommodates their schedule.
