The state of Texas is set to receive another 300,000 or so vaccines next week, so Dallas is thinking about allocation according to a WBAP article from January 23rd. In it they say:
“The state of Texas is scheduled to receive 332,750 doses of COVID-19 vaccine from the federal government next week. The Texas Department of State Health Services has instructed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to ship those doses to 212 providers across Texas.”
The vaccines can be administered at any of the over 80 vaccination hubs across the state according to a KENS 5 article from January 23rd. In it they say:
“In addition to the first doses mentioned above, the state is ordering 216,350 doses intended as the second dose for people first vaccinated a few weeks ago.
DSHS automatically allocates second doses to providers based on the number of first doses they received, so people should be able to return to the same provider to receive their second dose.
Texas providers have administered more than 1.6 million doses of vaccine. 1.37 million people have received at least one dose, and more than 228,000 have been fully vaccinated.”
High-risk groups like the elderly, health care workers, and people with medical conditions that heighten Covid risks are still the priority.
