SAN ANTONIOFeb. 3 Update:

On Wednesday, a WellMed official said that all available doses at the city’s two WellMed-run clinics in San Antonio are reserved.

The telephone registration hotline is now responding to callers with a recorded message stating that all slots are full.

No walk-ins will be accepted to either the Cisneros or Lopez Senior Centers.

WellMed will make a public announcement about reopening the hotline when they receive more vaccine doses.

Original Story:

The vaccination hotline went live again Saturday morning with people anxious to get their name on WellMed’s list.

The goal, according to Dr. Michael Almaleh, one of the leaders in WellMed’s COVID-19 response, is to reduce the wait time to get through to an operator.
