Williamson County reported 2,020 seniors living in long-term care facilities and nursing homes have been inoculated for COVID-19, according to a Jan. 5 news release.
The county said it has been working with state and private health care providers to ensure those most vulnerable to the disease have been vaccinated if they choose.
So far, the vaccine has been distributed to 14 long-term care and nursing home facilities in Williamson County through a collaboration with CVS Pharmacy and Walgreens, the release said.
“From the beginning I have stated that our seniors are our most valuable population, and they are the group of people who have suffered the greatest loss of life in our county and country,” Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell said in the release. “That is why we are using every resource available to protect them.”
