Dr. Robert Leverence, chief medical officer at UT Health San Antonio, discussed the latest on COVID-19 vaccine news including the timetable for the vaccine, how the vaccine will be distributed, the types of side effects the vaccine may have and when the vaccine could be made available for the community.
UT Health San Antonio is partnering with the state of Texas and the CDC to receive and administer COVID-19 vaccines. The vaccine is currently not available to the general public. We are following priority grouping for vaccine administration recommended by the CDC and the State. When the vaccine becomes available for UT Health patients, notices will be sent by MyChart with additional communication across our websites, social media and other media channels.
