 to administer 1 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine

DALLAS, TEXAS: Texas has become the first in the nation to administer 1 million doses, one month after the primary shipments of COVID-19 vaccines arrived in the state, Gov. Greg Abbott said Thursday.

The milestone comes as intensive care beds are dwindling across the state and as specialists foresee every day coronavirus cases and hospitalizations will worsen following an influx of holiday season gatherings.

Abbott said, “This is the biggest vaccination effort we have ever taken”. We still have a long road ahead of us, but Texans continue to prove that we are up to this challenge.”

As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Texas has managed a larger number of doses than any other state. The state has managed nearly half of the more than 2 million doses it’s received until now, placing it in the top 20 states for the percentage of doses administered.
