Of the 44,530 initial doses headed to local providers this week, half are Moderna shots and half are Pfizer. DSHS has not allocated any Johnson & Johnson vaccines this week; however, the agency told providers April 24 that they should resume administration of the Johnson & Johnson shot following an 11-day recommended pause by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. During the week of April 13, DSHS allocated 2,300 Johnson & Johnson doses to Travis County providers at the same time as the CDC recommended the pause. Some of those doses may be available this week.
As in previous weeks, regional hub provider Austin Public Health leads this week's local allocation with 12,000 Moderna doses. DSHS said in an April 23 news release that many of the state's large hubs had reduced their requests for allocations as doses become available at "smaller, more convenient locations." UT Health Austin, Travis County's other hub provider, is set to receive 5,850 Pfizer doses this week, down from 8,190 the week of April 19.
Ascension-Seton Medical Center, which contributes doses to the Central Texas Counties Vaccine Collaborative drive-thru vaccination site at the Circuit of the Americas, will receive 11,700 doses this week. Other providers receiving at least 1,000 doses include South Austin Medical Clinic, Vina Pharmacy, Austin Diagnostic Clinic, Walgreens Pharmacy at 3407 Wells Branch Parkway, Austin, and Baylor Scott & White Health locations in Austin and Lakeway.
