IMPORTANT PATIENT NOTICE:

CURRENTLY THERE ARE NO APPOINTMENTS FOR COVID-19 VACCINATIONS AVAILABLE. We will notify eligible patients by phone/text and through their MyKelseyOnline account once we receive more vaccine supply. At this time due to limited vaccine supply, patients are not able to directly schedule a COVID-19 vaccine immunization appointment. We appreciate your understanding and patience.

All vaccine shipments this week have been delayed by The State of Texas due to the significant weather and utility infrastructure impact throughout the entire state.


Weekly COVID-19 Vaccine Supply Update – Thursday, February 18:

To all our patients, we hope you have been staying safe and warm during this very challenging week as we not only faced a significant weather event, but also widespread utility outages and interruptions.

The State of Texas has delayed vaccine distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine this week due to the weather and power reliability concerns across our region. We have not received any further updates about allocations for this week or next.

Second Dose Appointment Updates: All second dose vaccines have remained safe on backup generator power. Patients who had appointments scheduled anytime between Monday, Feb. 15 through Friday, Feb. 19 that were cancelled will be contacted next week (week of Feb. 22) to reschedule their second dose vaccination appointment.

The second dose of the vaccine is still effective and safe if administered beyond the CDC’s recommended 21 (Pfizer) or 28 (Moderna) day wait period from the first dose. Patients who were unable to get vaccinated this week still have time to receive their second dose and will not lose immunity built up from the first dose. You can read the CDC’s vaccine FAQs HERE. We apologize for any inconvenience these weather and utility related cancellations this week may cause.

As power and water infrastructure reliability increases over the coming days/week we hope to receive updates from state officials about their plans regarding future vaccine allocations for our community.

Reminder: If you are a current patient and received your first or second dose vaccine through another provider or community vaccination hub/center, please message your primary care doctor with this information via the “ask my doctor” messaging feature in your secure MyKelseyOnline account so your medical record can be updated in our system.

Once vaccine is received, we will notify eligible patients by phone, text, and/or through their MyKelseyOnline account to schedule a vaccination appointment.

Top Questions of the Week:


I've heard that there will be a Moderna "booster" that covers the variant strains that are emerging now. Is this contained in the second shot or will it require a third injection?

When will the Johnson & Johnson vaccine be available, and will Kelsey Seybold receive it to administer?

If you’ve already been diagnosed and recovered from COVID-19, don’t you have antibodies to the virus? Why is it recommended to still get the vaccine?

When do you expect additional guidance to be provided regarding the young age group (under age 16) and when they could receive the vaccine?
