Here’s how you can register for the COVID-19 vaccine in San Antonio – KSAT San Antonio

The city of San Antonio will begin distributing thousands more doses of the COVID-19 vaccines, both Moderna and Pfizer, to eligible residents this week.

Three vaccine distribution sites have been announced so far: the Alamodome, the WellMed Elvira Cisneros Senior Community Center on the South Side, and the Alicia Treviño López Senior Community Center on the West Side.

All of these vaccine sites officially launch Monday, Jan. 9, and many spots have already been filled.

But, that doesn’t mean all hope is lost if you weren’t able to snag a vaccine just yet. City officials will keep the sites open for the coming weeks and more residents will be able to register as more vaccines arrive in Bexar County.
