Covid-19 Vaccine

 

Customers can schedule an appointment to receive their COVID-19 vaccine by checking the scheduler tool on heb.com/vaccine for appointment availability. All customers ages 12+* are currently eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccines in the state of Texas. The FDA has granted full approval to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for individuals age 16 and older.

Starting Sept. 27, H-E-B pharmacies will accept walk-ins for COVID-19 vaccines only Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. All other days and times are by appointment. To decrease your wait time, appointments are encouraged.

Starting Sept. 24, a single booster dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine can be administered at least six months after completion of Pfizer’s primary two-dose series in:

  • individuals age 65 and older
  • individuals age 18 to 64 with underlying medical conditions that puts them at high risk
  • individuals age 18 to 64 who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of their work or institutional setting

Currently, individuals who received the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines are not eligible for the Pfizer booster shot or a booster shot from their respective vaccine. See more about Pfizer booster shots from the CDC and FDA websites.

An additional dose of Pfizer vaccine (age 12+) or Moderna vaccine (age 18+) is authorized and recommended only for moderately to severely immunocompromised patients who have already received their second dose and it has been 28 days since the second shot.

H-E-B pharmacies have ample supply of COVID-19 vaccines and have more than 1,800 certified immunizers across the state ready to administer shots. To minimize your wait, we recommend you make an appointment.

Please check heb.com/vaccine for more information, FAQs, and to access our scheduler tool. We will continue to update our vaccine pages with additional information as it arises.

For additional information about the Covid-19 vaccine, visit the CDC website here and the Texas Department of Health Services website. For more info about H-E-B Pharmacy, visit our Pharmacy page on heb.com.

* Children ages 12-17 are only eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. Adults 18+ are eligible for the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
