Even before the COVID-19 pandemic started its devastating roll across the country, the health care work environment was experiencing challenges – especially for nurses in Houston.

This January 2021, Texas will get about 200,000 more doses of the COVID-19 vaccine next week, most of them earmarked for large “vaccination hubs” capable of vaccinating up to 100,000 people – helping streamline distribution as the number of eligible Texans grows.

“These vaccination hubs will provide people in those priority populations with identifiable sites where vaccination is occurring and a simpler way to sign-up for an appointment with each provider,” the Texas Department of State Health Services said in a written statement.

Officials warned that even after the next shipment brings the state’s total allotment to 1.7 million since mid-December, the state is still far short of what it needs to vaccinate the millions of Texans currently eligible for the vaccine and that “it will take time” for supply to catch up with demand.

Nearly 1.4 million doses had been shipped by the end of the day Wednesday, according to state numbers. The state does not publicly report how many doses providers have received. At least 475,000 Texans have received the first dose of the vaccine, and more than 6,500 have been fully inoculated with the required two doses, according to the state data, although those numbers lag behind real-time because of reporting delays.
