Some 28 coronavirus “vaccination hubs” will receive most of the state’s next shipment of COVID-19 vaccines this week, with 158,825 doses shipping to providers able to manage large-scale efforts as more doses arrive in the state.

The news conference will begin at 12 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 11 at the Expo Center, 1200 Ballpark Way in Arlington.

The Governor will be joined by Texas Division of Emergency Management Chief Nim Kidd, Texas Department of State Health Services Commissioner John Hellerstedt, MD, Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams, Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley, and Texas Health Resources CEO Barclay E. Berdan.
