Vaccines coming soon
AUSTIN—Gov. Greg Abbott announced that Texas could receive coronavirus vaccine doses to give an initial dose to up to 1.4 million Texans in December, assuming U.S. health officials approve coronavirus vaccine candidates from drug makers Pfizer and Moderna.
The vaccines require two doses per person, and state health officials have said health care workers will be first in line along with first responders and residents of nursing homes.
Abbott said the vaccines would likely arrive in Texas the week of Dec. 14. A second shipment is expected to arrive in January.
“The State of Texas is already prepared for the arrival of a COVID-19 vaccine and will swiftly distribute these vaccines to Texans who voluntarily choose to be immunized,” Abbott said. “As we await the first shipment of these vaccines, we will work with communities to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.”
