AUSTIN, Texas – The vaccine for COVID-19 is being spread across Texas.
“I think we’ve all been preparing for this waiting for this day,” said Dr. MaryAnn Tran an Infectious diseases physician at Baylor Scott & White in Round Rock.
First 975 doses of the Pfizer vaccine were received in Round Rock and Baylor Scott & White began the vaccination process. “In the first stage only the high risk people will receive the vaccine. As expected, the healthcare workers are first in the battle line so they are receiving the vaccine first and eventually it’ll be rolled out to the rest of the healthcare workers in our system,” said Dr. Tran.
Dr. Tran was among those to receive the vaccine first on Friday. He said that it was like any other vaccination experience, nothing is really different. “The process is the same like always: you wait in the line, they will take you name and number and you will be given a documents that you received the vaccine.” he also added.
“Not everyone can receive a vaccine right now we have such limited doses and even if you do get the vaccine it’s not 100%,” said Dr. Tran.
She urged people to continue wearing a mask and follow social distancing guidelines as more people continue to get vaccinated.
