Mayor Nirenberg flexes after getting first dose of coronavirus vaccine at Alamodome

He tweeted photos and a thank you to health workers and others who have been working for months to get people vaccinated.

SAN ANTONIO — Mayor Ron Nirenberg got his first dose of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine at the Alamodome on Saturday.

He tweeted photos and a thank you to Metro Health, the fire department, the Alamodome and the volunteers who have been vaccinating people at the facility since January.

"Folks need to know we have vaccine enough for people to just show up," he said. "At the Alamodome if you don't have an appointment, you can come between 2 and 5 p.m. and there's doses available, so please, please, please get a vaccine." 

The former bodybuilder hoisted his arms and flexed after his first dose. San Antonio native and bestselling author Shea Serrano weighed in.

The latest information shows that Nirenberg joins the more than 40% of eligible Bexar County residents who have received at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine.
