With supply now outpacing demand and eligibility open to all adults, the County is adjusting how clinics are scheduled.
“The success of our efforts paired with our local pharmacies and vaccine providers have made sure that there is availability of vaccines to everyone who wants one,” said Cheryl Fraser, Director of Comal County Public Health. “It is a great success that we are not seeing the demand for the vaccine like we were in the past few months. Even with the standby list going away we want the community to know that we are still here for those who have yet to get the vaccine. Our Mass Vaccine clinics will continue at the New Braunfels Civic & Convention Center the next couple of months to make sure that vaccine is accessible to them.”
