AUSTIN, Texas (Nexstar) – More doses of the Coronavirus are being shipped to the Permian Basin this week.  

According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, more than 7,000 doses of the vaccine will be shipped to Midland County this week, distributed among several healthcare providers.  

  • Midland Memorial Hospital – 5,850 (Pfizer)
  • DSHS Midland – 1,100 (J&J)

Meanwhile, in Odessa, Medical Center Hospital will receive 2,340 doses of the Pfizer vaccine. Odessa Regional Medical Center is not among the list of facilities receiving vaccines this week.  

The state of Texas hit a milestone Friday — 10 million COVID-19 vaccines administered in the state. 

More than 30% of eligible Texans right now have gotten at least one dose of the vaccine, according to Gov. Greg Abbott’s office. That number could continue to climb this week as the Texas Department of State Health Services will expand access to anyone above the age of 16.
