COVID-19 Vaccine Information

**Vaccine supply is limited and it will take time to vaccinate everyone. Thank you for your patience as the State rolls out more vaccines every week. Currently, only those in Phase 1A and 1B are eligible to receive the vaccination.**

Phase 1A: Front-line healthcare workers and residents at long-term care facilities
Phase 1B: People over 65 and people with a chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from COVID‑19.

COVID-19 Vaccination Distribution 

**UPDATE 1-20-21**
The Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine candidate, Janssen, is currently completing the Phase 3 clinical trials in the US. Johnson & Johnson anticipates filing for an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) through the FDA in early February. This is a single dose vaccine candidate. The other top vaccine candidate, COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca, is anticipating producing finalized data for their Phase 3 clinical trial data and filing for an EUA at the end of January.

Last year, the federal government created Operation Warp Speed and set a goal to deliver 300 million doses of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines to be administered at no cost to recipients nationwide, with the initial doses available by January 2021. So far, two manufacturers, Pfizer and Moderna, have been approved and began shipping vaccines in mid-December. 

Currently, the availability of these vaccines is limited due to both the sheer magnitude of an operation this size and the extreme conditions needed to secure and maintain the vaccines. 

The City will continue to work with area providers, helping them through the approval process and providing support for any long-term care facilities not scheduled to receive vaccines from third party providers. This role may evolve over time as the vaccine becomes more generally available and future needs are identified. Vaccinating everyone will take time, the process could extend well into 2021 and no one agency, hospital or business can manage a project of this magnitude. We will all work together – the Rowlett way - to ensure the health and safety of our community!
