AUSTIN (KXAN) — Even though a viable option does not exist yet, Texas announced its plan to distribute a COVID-19 vaccine and who should receive it first.
The Texas Department of State Health Services shared that the vaccine will go to healthcare workers and then to vulnerable populations, like those with underlying health conditions and people 65 and older.
In a video lasting less than five minutes, Will DuPree shares other details about that plan as well as discusses these additional stories in the latest KXAN Live News Notes:
