Walk-ins are not accepted. Patients scheduled to receive their second COVID-19 vaccinations this week at these clinics should return next week to their assigned location on the same day of the week to receive their shot. For example, if you were scheduled to receive your shot at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 17 at the Lopez center, you will go to the Lopez center at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24. These clinics, operated in partnership with the City of San Antonio, administer the Moderna vaccine. Patients scheduled to return this week were to receive a second dose 28 days after their first shot. The Centers for Disease Control says the second dose may be administered up to 42 days after the initial dose for the two-shot regimen to remain effective.
