Covid Vaccine Texas Rollout
You can read the entire article in the above website but here is the just of it.
There's a Covid vaccine and according to the information in the above website it could be rolled out to Texas as soon as December. Here is what I found on Khou.com.
The state says the first vaccines will be given to people who meet the following criteria, according to the release.
- Protecting health care workers who fill a critical role in caring for and preserving the lives of COVID-19 patients and maintaining the health care infrastructure for all who need it.
- Protecting frontline workers who are at greater risk of contracting COVID-19 due to the nature of their work providing critical services and preserving the economy.
- Protecting vulnerable populations who are at greater risk of severe disease and death if they contract COVID-19.
- Mitigating health inequities due to factors such as demographics, poverty, insurance status and geography.
- Data-driven allocations using the best available scientific evidence and epidemiology at the time, allowing for flexibility for local conditions.
- Geographic diversity through a balanced approach that considers access in urban and rural communities and in affected ZIP codes.
- Transparency through sharing allocations with the public and seeking public feedback.
As far as how healthcare workers will receive the vaccine there are phases and tiers and I figured you could just check out that info on the khou.com website. The point is this could be a very,very good thing!
