All Adults In Texas Eligible For COVID-19 Vaccine Starting March 29

The Texas Department of State Health Services announced that all adults will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine beginning Monday, March 29.

“We are closing in on 10 million doses administered in Texas, and we want to keep up the momentum as the vaccine supply increases,” said Imelda Garcia, DSHS associate commissioner for laboratory and infectious disease services and the chair of the Expert Vaccine Allocation Panel. “As eligibility opens up, we are asking providers to continue to prioritize people who are the most at risk of severe disease, hospitalization and death – such as older adults.”

Priority will be given to people 80 years or older when making appointments and they may also be moved to the front of the line when they show up for a vaccine, the state said.
