SAN ANTONIO (January 13, 2021) – Effective at noon today, Metro Health began scheduling second dose COVID-19 vaccine appointments on-site after patients receive their first dose at the Alamodome to streamline the scheduling process. Previously, people vaccinated were told to register online one week prior to when their second dose was due.

Patients who received their first dose of the vaccine at the Alamodome prior to noon today will receive a phone call from Metro Health to schedule their second dose. If a person missed a call from Metro Health and would like to schedule their second dose they can call 311 and select option 8 or email
