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.
