The Arrival of COVID-19 Vaccinations
The anticipated arrival of several FDA-authorized vaccines signifies good news in the effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19; however, we recognize the vaccinations do not guarantee an immediate end to the virus or all safety concerns. We continue to encourage the practice of effective preventive measures such as wearing face coverings, hand washing, and social distancing. And now, health professionals are encouraging high vaccination rates locally and nationwide as the most effective means to successfully mitigate COVID-19.
Vaccination Availability and Distribution
Due to recent FDA authorization, vaccinations are currently available in a limited supply. The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is leading the distribution of this supply and the groups who qualify for each phase of the distribution.
For more information, please visit the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) COVID Vaccine Information page.
Staying the Course
2020 has been a year full of many challenges, and we have faced each challenge together with strength, courage and determination. The tremendous efforts of our entire community to respectfully protect the health of everyone has not come easily, and the anticipated arrival of COVID-19 vaccines is great news; however, the mission is not yet complete. In 2021, we must continue to practice safe and healthy preventive measures such as wearing face coverings, hand washing and social distancing until COVID-19 has been successfully and completely mitigated.
