Joint Update on Local COVID-19 Vaccine Planning Efforts

On Tuesday, January 19, 2021, Guadalupe Regional Medical Center, Guadalupe County, and the City of Seguin submitted a joint mass vaccine plan to the Texas Department of State Health Services detailing how the community stakeholders will work together to deliver up to 1,000 vaccines per day if the State grants an allocation of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The plan includes setting up three large scale vaccine hubs in the County. One vaccine hub would be located at the Seguin Coliseum with other hubs planned for the West and North Sides of Guadalupe County pending confirmation of available facilities that can accommodate large volumes of people and vehicles.

There is not a waiting list for vaccines. If the State grants the allocation request we will clearly communicate the registration and scheduling process to the public.

Governor Greg Abbott held a press conference Monday January 11, 2021 to update Texas on COVID-19 vaccines in Texas. He reminded the public that it has been one month since the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine emergency use authorization was approved (with the Moderna vaccine EUA granted the following week). He announced that the state is working on large scale HUB vaccination centers capable of vaccinating thousands of people in one day with plans for 28 large scale vaccine hubs and 206 in smaller communities around the state. Health care workers, those 65 and up and those with chronic healthcare conditions are primary priority.

Guadalupe Regional Medical Center, Guadalupe County, and the City of Seguin are committed to helping ensure the COVID-19 vaccine is delivered to our community. We will update you as more information becomes available.
