As of Jan. 17, Texas had administered almost 1.28 million doses of the vaccine, about 62% of the 2 million doses that had been allocated at that time. All 254 Texas counties have received at least one allocation.
A total of 166,834 people in the state have been fully vaccinated, and over 1.1 million individuals from the Phase 1 population, which is estimated to include 13.5 million individuals total, have received at least one dose. The Phase 1 population includes Phase 1A, which includes health care workers and nursing home residents, and Phase 1B, which includes everyone over age 65 and people over age 16 with certain medical conditions.
About 5% of the entire state population of people age 16 and over—almost 22.5 million—has received at least one dose. Children under age 16 are not yet allowed to take the vaccine.
The state is expected to receive a shipment of 333,650 first doses of COVID-19 vaccine the week of Jan. 18, according to a news release from the Texas Department of State Health Services. Those doses will be shipped directly to 260 providers, according to the DSHS, including 79 community hubs—up from 28 the week prior. The state is requesting half a million second doses this week, according to the release, but the DSHS has not provided a timetable for their arrival.
The state is updating vaccine data daily. The figures may contain errors, and population estimates are based on projections and survey data.
