Three new COVID-19 deaths reported

Posted in:

Three new deaths in Bandera County were attributed to COVID-19, bringing the count since the start of the pandemic to 61, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) as of Monday afternoon.

DSHS listed 32 active COVID-19 cases in the county, up from last week’s 2021-low of three.

On Saturday, December 4th, Peterson Health will host a vaccine clinic starting at 7:30 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church at 321 Thompson Drive for people 12 years and older needing a first dose, second dose or booster. The clinic will also be administering the Pfizer pediatric COVID-19 vaccine for children ages five to 11.

If you have received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, a booster can be administered after at least six months from completing the primary COVID-19 series.

If you have received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, you are eligible for a booster if you are 18 years or older and have received your initial vaccine at least two months prior.

According to the CDC, vaccines can be interchanged. If you received one from the first series, you can receive a different vaccine as a booster. CDC now allows for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots as people may prefer the vaccine type they can now receive.

In addition, Peterson Health will be offering the newly approved COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine for children ages five to eleven. Pfizer is the only approved vaccine for children in this age group at this time.
