Update on COVID-19 Vaccine Availability in our Office
We are waiting for approval from the Texas Department of Health Services to provide the vaccine. The application is pending right now. With the holidays we expect a delay. We expect to hear something back from them mid January or shortly after. Once we do we will need to wait for the State to tell us when we will receive our shipment. As we get our approval and then shipment notification, we will send out 1 or 2 text messages and/or emails to our patients to give them an update and what to expect or what to do. When the vaccine makes it to our office, we will contact patients by priority, as instructed by the State, to schedule if they have not already received the vaccine. In addition, different Brands of the vaccine is not recommended; therefore if you received a Pfizer vaccine you will need to continue with a facility that provides that Covid-19 vaccine. We will not be providing the Pfizer brand for this vaccine. There are two other brands that may be available to us and we will inform patients when we find out.
We just need to wait a little longer. Thank you for your patience.
