Schertz COvid-19 vaccination clinic
The City of Schertz will host a no-cost COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the Schertz Civic Center starting on Wednesday, January 20 through Friday, January 22 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We anticipate we will receive approximately 975 doses of the Pfizer vaccination.
At this time per state guidelines, the city will be administering vaccines to those who fall under Phases 1A and 1B. Registration will open on Tuesday, January 19 at 9:00 a.m. and is limited to approximately 975 spots. Appointments are required and can be made by visiting Signupgenius.com/go/SchertzEOCweek6 when the link goes live. Walk-ins will not be accepted.
Please contact providers in advance to confirm vaccination location and hours, that they have the vaccine on hand, and that you are eligible for vaccination at that site.
The City of Schertz is registered as a vaccination provider for the COVID-19 vaccines. Because of its specialized equipment and trained personnel, the City met qualifications to receive, store and distribute COVID-19 vaccines and is listed on the vaccine provider locations map. At this time the City of Schertz does not have any vaccines. For more information about vaccine providers in our area, please review the vaccine provider location map and contact the local provider.
Priorities for populations receiving the vaccine have been outlined by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). If the City of Schertz receives additional vaccines they will be administered in accordance with those phases and subsequent tiers. Deviation from that guidance will only occur in the instance that vaccines may not be used and are in jeopardy of being wasted.

Where can I get my vaccination?
Please reference the Texas COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Locations map to find distribution sites that may have vaccines available at this time.
Who is getting the vaccine next and when?
Based on the Department of State Health Services website, the Expert Vaccine Allocation Panel (EVAP) is considering what criteria could be used for later stages of vaccine distribution. Spring 2021 is the best estimate of when the vaccine will be available for the general public, but that may change. It depends on vaccine production and how quickly other vaccines become available. For more information review the DSHS Vaccine Information webpage.
