As coronavirus vaccines have become more widely available and appointments more accessible, Comal County will no longer host mass vaccination clinics at the New Braunfels Civic/Convention Center.

The final mass vaccination clinic for first doses will be held on Wednesday, May 19, and the final second dose clinic will be held on Tuesday, June 15. Both clinics will take place from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at the New Braunfels Civic/Convention Center, 375 S. Castell Avenue.

Following the end of the clinics, the health department will continue to offer coronavirus vaccines by appointment.

The Comal County Public Health Department has so far conducted 23 vaccination clinics that began in January and have administered more than 33,000 first and second doses of the Moderna vaccine, according to the county.

“There are 50 providers in Comal County now administering COVID-19 vaccines so we don’t have thousands of people waiting to get vaccines anymore,” said Comal County Judge Sherman Krause in a statement. “That makes it possible for us to begin the transition away from mass clinics and return vaccine efforts to our Public Health Department.”

Comal County providers have administered more than 109,600 doses of the vaccine since December, according to the Department of State Health Services, and 39.85% of residents over the age of 16 have been fully vaccinated as of May 13.

Following the FDA’s authorization for the use of the Pfizer vaccine in children ages 12-15, the county will begin requesting doses of the Pfizer vaccine to administer to children.

Residents interested in receiving a vaccine or registering a child for a vaccine can visit the county website or call 830-221-1150 to register for an appointment.
