The state of Texas will receive over 400,000 first doses of COVID-19 vaccine from the federal government, with nine Rio Grande Valley locations receiving 23,575 of those dosages.

According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, the Centers for Disease Control and

Prevention will ship the 407,650 total dosages to 302 providers in 158 counties across Texas.

The Valley providers who will receive the shipments of first doses of the COVID vaccine are:

                         975 doses of the Pfizer vaccine

The dosages will be received for the week of Feb. 15. Vaccines remain limited based on the capacity of the manufacturers to produce it, so it will take time for Texas to receive enough vaccine for all the people in the priority populations who want to be vaccinated, DSHS said in a news release. Currently, there is not enough vaccine to supply every provider with vaccine every week.

People can find more information on COVID-19 vaccine at the DSHS website.
