Texas to get more than 400,000 first doses of COVID-19 vaccine for week of Feb. 15


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Texas is expected to receive 407,650 first doses of COVID-19 vaccine from the federal government next week, according to a release from the Texas Department of State Health Services Friday.

Texas DSHS said it instructed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to ship those doses to 302 providers in 158 counties across Texas. This includes 85 hub providers focused on serving the broader community and 217 providers who will focus on older adults.

On top of that allocation, the government shipped 80,000 doses of vaccine to 376 pharmacy locations in the state including select CVS, H-E-B, Walmart locations as well as independent pharmacies, DSHS said.

DSHS is asking providers to make accommodations for people 75 and older, who are especially at risk for severe symptoms when contracting COVID-19. Providers are allowed to set aside a number of doses for older adults and serve them during special hours.

The state is also ordering 333,650 doses to be used as “second” doses for those vaccinated a few weeks ago, DSHS said.

So far, 3.8 million doses of the vaccine have been administered, according to DSHS. Nearly 2.8 million have gotten at least one dose, and more than 1 million have been fully vaccinated.

Right now, providers are still focusing on priority groups.

On Thursday, DSHS said to expect vaccine delays at the beginning of the week.

“Every time there are weather issues, it can disrupt the shipping supply line and so we do ask that providers keep that in mind as they are planning for next week’s shipments and appointments,” DSHS Associate Commissioner Imelda Garcia said.
