Rockwall County, Texas – January 27, 2021 – In partnership, Rockwall County and Rockwall County Helping Hands distributed one hundred and ten (110) doses of COVID-19 vaccine last week to Liberty Heights and Reese Manor senior living facilities. First doses were given to residents and staff who opted to receive the vaccine. As of January 27, 2021, four thousand two hundred and twenty-nine (4229) Rockwall County residents have received the first dose and seven hundred and eighty (780) residents are fully vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine.
How quickly these doses will be allocated by the Texas DSHS Expert Vaccine Allocation Panel is still a question. CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told Fox News on Sunday, “I can’t tell you how much vaccine we have, and if I can’t tell it to you then I can’t tell it to the governors, and I can’t tell it to the state health officials.” Representative Justin Holland’s office has been assisted Rockwall County in requesting more allocations of the COVID-19 vaccine as well.
