Titus County Judge Brian Lee

Titus County Judge Brian Lee reports that vaccine recipients will not be guaranteed a second dose starting this week on his Facebook page. Because production quantities are uncertain, the state believes it is more important to have more people vaccinated one time than fewer people vaccinated twice. Lee said the good news is that the first vaccine is showing antibody production.

FRI JAN 15 Titus COVID update

372 – active cases (down!)

2,328 – Cumulative

52 – Fatalities

Trauma Service Area F still at 22% Covid Patients

TRMC has 21 COVID Patients (up)

TRMC received 300 vaccine doses this week, which will deplete as of today. The focus is still on First Responders, Healthcare Workers, and a few in group 1B. They expect 400 doses this week and will complete group 1A and focus on waitlist names of those over 65 and those with specific health issues. TRMC hopes to continue to receive at least 400 per week.

There is still no definite word on when or if Titus will be a Vaccine hub.

I’m not sure what quantities our pharmacies will receive, but be sure you are on a waitlist somewhere. TRMC waitlist has over 4300 names on the list.

Next week, vaccine recipients will not be guaranteed a second dose. Because production quantities are uncertain, the state believes it is more important to have more people vaccinated one time than fewer people vaccinated twice. We hope the production will continue to allow the second treatment, but again NO GUARANTEE for those vaccinated next week and beyond. The good news is that the first vaccine is showing antibody production.

For more discussion on the vaccine, you might want to watch the TRMC town hall meeting that they broadcast Thursday, Jan 14, featuring Dr. Stagg and Dr. DeLisi.
