In order to better accommodate resident work schedules, Hays County has designated some COVID-19 vaccine clinics to be open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m on designated days. These sites will give first-dose Moderna vaccines.
“The Hays County Office of Emergency Management was able to coordinate additional no-appointment COVID-19 vaccine clinics,” said Hays County Judge Ruben Becerra. “Later hours may offer more flexibility for those in our community who might have challenges in getting to a clinic by 8 p.m.”
So far, there are four non-appointment vaccine clinic times and locations:
- April 30 (Friday) – Sinai Pentecostal Church, 208 Laredo St., San Marcos
- May 4 (Tuesday) – Santa Cruz Church, 1100 Main St., Buda
- May 13 (Thursday) – Dunbar Recreation Center, 801 Martin Luther King Dr., San Marcos
Becerra’s office is working to coordinate a vaccine clinic at St. Anthony’s Church in Kyle. More information will be released when details are confirmed.
To get the Moderna first dose, residents can simply show up at any of the above locations during the listed times. Patients must be able to return to the original vaccine site after four weeks to receive their second dose.
These Moderna clinics are separate from the Hays County Local Health Department clinics and they are not using doses allocated to the health department by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Additional non-appointment clinics are open for first dose Pfizer vaccines, held at the Live Oak Community Clinic at 401 Broadway in San Marcos on May 3 and 4.
