In the nine ZIP codes that comprise the Spring and Klein area, 96,260 people have been vaccinated. This figure represents 26.26% of the area’s population. However, that is still well short of the 80% mark that health experts have said will provide herd immunity.
Overall, Harris County has roughly 18% of its population vaccinated. Statewide, 2.9 million Texans have been fully inoculated.
Groups eligible for the vaccine include the Phase 1A group—health care workers and other first responders; the Phase 1B group—people 16 and older with a health condition that increases risk of COVID-19; the Phase 1C group—people ages 50-64; and education and child care workers.
Correction: The original version of this article had an incorrect headline. It mistakenly said almost 1 million people were vaccinated in the Spring and Klein area, not 100,000.
