AUSTIN, Texas. (KTAL/KMSS) – Close to 380,00 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are set to go out to more than 350 providers in 94 Texas counties over the next week.

According to the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, the CDC will deliver 175,100 doses of the vaccine manufactured by Moderna and 81,900 doses of the Pfizer vaccine directly to Texas providers.

An additional 121,875 doses of the Pfizer vaccine will go to the federal Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care Program.
