105 – active cases

TRMC reports 11 patients in the hospital, down slightly from last week, but these patients are quite sick.
*TRMC will not be one of the initial recipients
*Wadley, Christus, Hunt, and UT Health Tyler will receive a few
*Texas will get 1.4 million Pfizer doses by the end of the month
*Fed has been very complimentary of the Texas plan for distribution
*Moderna drug will begin distribution after the Pfizer hopefully by month-end.
*Hospital workers and long term care residents will be first recipients. It will still be several months before the vaccine is readily available to all.
