The Texas Department of State Health Services has received the first shipments of the COVID-19 vaccine. If you are interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, we are registered with the Texas Department of State Health Services to provide the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available. We expect to receive a very limited number of doses of COVID-19 vaccine for first responders and frontline healthcare workers in late December or early January. As we receive additional shipments throughout the year, we will expand vaccinations according to the Texas DSHS COVID-19 vaccine allocation and vaccination prioritization guidelines. The CDC has stated that supplies will increase over time, and all adults should be able to get vaccinated in 2021. Currently, a COVID-19 vaccine may not be available for young children until more studies are completed.
Now that there is an authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccine in the United States, accurate vaccine information is critical. We will regularly share clear and accurate information with you all to make sure everyone understands the risks and benefits of getting vaccinated and can make informed decisions.
Regular updates will be made as needed.
