More than 30 percent of eligible Texans have received vaccines, resulting in 10 million COVID-19 vaccines in total. This milestone is the result of work by the Texas Division of Emergency Management, the Texas Department of State Health Services, the Texas National Guard, and the healthcare workers and volunteers who assisted in the process.
“I want to thank all the healthcare workers and volunteers that made this milestone possible. However, the fight is not over,” said Gov. Greg Abbott. “Vaccines are the most effective tool to combat COVID-19 in our communities.”
Texas has steadily expanded vaccine access since doses first became available late last year. Texas was the first state to administer 1 million vaccines and continues to vaccinate thousands of Texans every day. The state has multiple programs dedicated to COVID-19 vaccine distribution and worked to prioritize access to vaccines for seniors.
