GRMC, City & County Hosting COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Thursday, February 25 at Seguin Coliseum

Guadalupe Regional Medical Center, Guadalupe County and the City of Seguin are partnering to offer a COVID-19 vaccine clinic this week at the Seguin Coliseum. Texas Department of State Health Services has allotted 1,000 first doses of the Moderna vaccine to the community.

The COVID-19 vaccines will be administered free of charge from 12 pm to 5 pm on Thursday, February 25 at the Coliseum, located at 950 S. Austin.

The vaccines will be distributed to individuals, per State guidelines, who fall under phases 1A and 1B. Recipients of the vaccine must be over 18 years of age. These are the only populations currently eligible to be vaccinated at this time. GRMC, the County and the City have transitioned to using a waitlist method to set COVID-19 vaccine appointments. When COVID-19 doses are received, those who sign up for the waitlist will receive an email notification to register for an appointment via email.

How to Sign-Up for the Waitlist
Sign up for the COVID-19 Vaccine Waitlist at the following link.

Once you receive an email you will have 12 hours to respond and set your appointment. After 12 hours of no response, your spot on the waitlist will roll off and you will need to sign up again for the waitlist. Signing up for the waitlist does not guarantee an appointment at the next vaccine clinic.Please be patient as we work through the waitlist. Vaccine availability is limited, and supply is not keeping pace with the demand in our area. The process of getting through the waitlist could take months and residents are encouraged to seek out alternative opportunities for a vaccine while on the waitlist.

Phase 1A recipients include:
• Front-line hospital workers
• Long-term care staff (including custodial and food service staff)
• Emergency response personnel
• Home health workers
• Residents of long-term care facilities

Phase 1B recipients include:
• People 65 years of age and older
• People 18 years and older with at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19, including but not limited to:
o Cancer
o Chronic kidney disease
o COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
o Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease or cardiomyopathies
o Solid organ transplantation
o Obesity and severe obesity (body mass index of 30 kg/m2 or higher)
o Pregnancy
o Sickle cell disease
o Type 2 diabetes mellitus

People who are allergic to a component of the vaccine, had any vaccine in the past 14 days, or had monoclonal antibody infusion or convalescent plasma in the past 90 days are ineligible for the vaccine. For more information, call 830-303-9701 or email for questions.
