Texas Is Opening COVID-19 Vaccinations To All Adults Starting Next Week
Starting Monday, March 29, all citizens over the age of 16 in the state will be eligible to receive the vaccine according to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).
"We are closing in on 10 million doses administered in Texas, and we want to keep up the momentum as the vaccine supply increases," said Imelda Garcia, a DSHS associate commissioner, in the release.
The DSHS has directed vaccine distributors to continue to prioritize those over the age of 80, even if they're at the back of the line.
The department is also forming a new website that will allow citizens to register for the vaccine through public health providers and will also notify them when new clinics and/or appointments become available.
The CDC has a robust website with all the latest information on the vaccines and can answer any questions you may have. Click here for more information.
