In Montgomery County, 2,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine were sent to 15 local clinics, physicians' offices and pharmacies in the fourth week of allocations through the Texas Department of State Health Services. This week's allocation is the county's smallest since distribution began during the week of Dec. 13.
A total of 21,400 doses of both vaccines have now been allocated to Montgomery County providers through the first four weeks of statewide distribution. As of 4 p.m. Jan. 5, a total of 4,616 vaccines had been administered in the county, according to DSHS data.
The Montgomery County Public Health District, which received 100 vaccine doses last week for health care workers, first responders and its staff, has said it will begin vaccinating some county residents as more doses become available this year.
Texas remains in the first phase of its COVID-19 vaccination plan, with the state's limited supply of vaccines reserved for health care and front-line workers, long-term care residents, Texans age 65 and above, and those age 16 and above with chronic medical conditions.
