First Lady Dr. Jill Biden will be in Texas today to promote the COVID-19 vaccination, WOAI news reports
It comes at a time when Texas, and other southern states are lagging behind.
Baylor infectious disease expert Dr. Peter Hotez tells 1200 WOAI's Michael Board that the state is not in a good place
"We're seeing a sharp increase in COVID cases in East Texas. Together with low vaccination coverage, that spells trouble."
Jill Biden will be joined by Cowboys' legend Emmitt Smith in Dallas to visit J. Conrad High School. She will then visit Minute Maid Park along with Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, touring a vaccination event and attending the Astros game.
