SAN ANTONIO — The Alamodome is gearing back up to welcome people to get their COVID-19 vaccinations. This time, eligible people can get their Pfizer booster shots three days a week just by driving up.
Starting September 29, the shots will be available without an appointment through Metro Health on Wednesdays through Fridays from noon until 8 p.m. You are required to bring your immunization card to confirm the completion of the vaccine series to receive the third dose.
Booster shots are available for people older than 65, adults at high-risk for severe COVID-19 disease because of underlying health conditions, and adults who are likely to be exposed to the Coronavirus at work.
Only Pfizer's shot is currently approved as a booster. The Centers for Disease Control does not recommend mixing and matching vaccines. The CDC and FDA say a booster shot should not be administered earlier than six months after the second dose.
Earlier this year, the facility served as one of the city's sites of mass vaccination clinics.
