AUSTIN (KXAN) — Texas is expected to receive its largest COVID-19 vaccine shipment yet from the federal government the week of March 1.

The Texas Department of State Health Services announced 676,280 first doses have been allocated. Those doses will go out to 522 providers in 199 counties in the state. This number includes 84,240 doses for federally-supported vaccine clinics in the Houston and North Texas areas, as well as 52,650 unused doses returned to the state by the long-term care program.

Next week will be the 12th week of vaccine rollout.

DSHS said providers have administered more than 5 million doses. More than 3.3 million Texans have gotten at least one dose, and 1.7 million are fully vaccinated. More than 40% of adults 65 years and older have gotten at least one dose, and nearly 1 in 5 are fully vaccinated, according to the department.

Another 429,600 doses have been ordered to be used as second doses. These will arrive when they are needed to be administered, DSHS explained. Patients should be able to go back to the same provider they got their first dose at.

If the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Texas could get an initial supply of more than 200,000 doses. There is no shipping timeline for this yet, DSHS said.
