“I encourage anyone who is still looking for a vaccine to call us. There shouldn’t be any problem getting a vaccine at this point. We have doses of Moderna ready to give,” said Patricia Mechler at Medina County Health Unit in Hondo.
Medina County still has plenty of Moderna vaccine available in the county for those that want it.
“If you have a group of 10 or more, we can come to you in Devine or wherever with our traveling unit,” Mechler said. “We want to make this easily available to anyone who wants it.”
Medina Regional is also giving vaccines in Natalia this Thursday, April 22nd for anyone 18+ (see separate article).
“I have given a lot of shots, and for most people it’s nothing more than a sore arm. Some people will get a little fever, and feel tired for a day or so. In fact I did, but I know it’s better than the alternative. It’s better than getting Covid, and going to the hospital.”
If you are unable to register online or need help locating vaccine, call the Heath Unit at 830-741-6191. You do NOT have to be a Medina County resident.
