BCMS Vaccination Event – 2nd Doses
If you received your first dose of Moderna vaccine at the BCMS vaccination event on Jan. 10, please watch your text, email or answer your phone, H-E-B Pharmacy will be contacting you regarding the second doses. If you receive a text message stating, “H-E-B Pharmacy: Please reply Y or Yes to confirm subscription to RX Alerts. Reply HELP for help. Msg frequency varies by account.” It is important for you to reply Y or Yes. You now basically have a prescription for the second doses of the vaccine. If all goes well, we hope to have a second dose clinic at BCMS on Feb. 6.
