SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio city officials announced that a drive-thru option for the COVID-19 vaccine will now be available to the public.
The city says people ages 16 years and older can now get a COVID-19 vaccination without an appointment at the Alamodome drive-thru clinic from noon to 5 p.m. starting Thursday, April 23.
San Antonio Assistant City Manager Dr. Colleen Bridger said the city wanted to make the process easier for people seeking a vaccine.
“Now that the supply has caught up with the demand, we want to make getting your COVID-19 vaccination as easy as possible,” Bridger said. “We recognize that for some people it is easier to just pop in rather than make an appointment and we wanted to accommodate that preference.”
San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg said he was proud of how the local community has stepped up to get vaccinated.
“San Antonio continues to exceed both state and national averages in the number of people vaccinated,” Nirenberg said. “I’m proud of the way San Antonians have come together during this pandemic and stayed the course. Practicing social distancing, good hygiene, wearing masks and getting vaccinated is making a difference. I encourage all eligible persons to get vaccinated.”
