COVID-19 pop-up vaccination, recall clinic taking place on Monday outside Bexar County Jail


SAN ANTONIO – A pop-up COVID-19 vaccination and booster clinic is being held at the Bexar County Jail on Monday, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.

The event will take place from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. outside the Adult Detention Center in the 200 block of North Comal Street, not far from West Martin Street and downtown Interstate 35.

The COVID-19 vaccine and booster shots are free and without an appointment. For those who wish to receive a reminder, you must bring your vaccination record, said the press release.

The BCSO said that, as COVID-19 infection rates continue to rise in the community, the importance of mitigating the spread of the Omicron variant remains a priority for public health as a whole. The Center for Disease Control recommends vaccination for anyone aged 5 years and older.

“Our community is experiencing a wave of COVID-19 cases due to the rapidly spreading Omicron variant, and we all must continue to take precautions to protect ourselves and our loved ones,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg. “As the number of cases increases, the data indicates that vaccines prevent serious illness. Vaccines remain the best defense against any variant of COVID-19. Get vaccinated, wear a mask, and stay home if you are sick. “
