H-E-B has requested another allocation of vaccine from the state of Texas. Its initial allocation has either already been distributed or is scheduled to be administered.
The retailer is awaiting another allocation of vaccine from the state so it can continue to vaccinate healthcare providers as well as begin offering vaccine to those in Phase 1B. Once it has the supply, H-E-B will activate a scheduler tool on its website so people can schedule an appointment.
During this first phase of the Covid-19 vaccine rollout, some H-E-B pharmacies received limited quantity of the Moderna vaccine to help vaccinate community healthcare providers.
Many H-E-B Pharmacy locations are still working through waitlists for healthcare providers.
The company says it will continue to move into vaccinating people in Phase 1B when it receives more allocation of Covid-19 vaccine from the state of Texas.
H-E-B has strong capacity to administer vaccine, however that depends on the quantity of Covid-19 vaccine allocated to it from the state. Following the state directive, H-E-B pharmacies will vaccinate people identified in Phase 1B if there are doses left after prioritizing healthcare providers in Phase 1A who are waiting to receive the vaccine.
Each Covid-19 vaccine vial has 10 doses. Once opened, a vial must be used within hours.
Per the government guidelines, vaccine providers are directed to not waste doses and can provide remaining doses to people who fall within the next priority group.
An appointment must be scheduled to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. H-E-B pharmacies will not accept walk ins.
In the coming days, people will be able to schedule a Covid-19 vaccination through its web-based scheduler, which will be available on the H-E-B Pharmacy page.
Health care providers with groups larger than 30 should email [email protected] to schedule an appointment to receive the Covid-19 vaccine.
Healthcare providers with groups smaller than 30 should contact their local H-E-B Pharmacy to schedule an appointment.
H-E-B pharmacies will partner with the federal and state government to administer the Covid-19 vaccine as it becomes available to the general public, following the CDC distribution schedule.
The Covid-19 vaccine is currently not available to the general public.
