TEXARKANA — The Bowie County emergency operations center says that 6,200 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered as of Jan. 13.

The emergency operations center says there have been 1,700 doses of Moderna and 4,500 doses of Pfizer.

To date, there have been 1,708 people who have been vaccinated in Bowie County with one dose according to the Texas state department of health’s website. There have been 123 Bowie County vaccinated with two doses. However, the state department of health says there is a lag in the reporting.

There are 29 facilities in the county registered to receive supplies of the vaccine, either to vaccinate employees or the public. To date, nine of those facilities have received shipments as determined by the state department of health.

Texas is in Phase 1B of the vaccine plan, which makes vaccinations available to people 65 years or older, or 16 and older with at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from the novel coronavirus.
