A number of large vaccine hubs are preparing to close according to an NBC 5 DFW article from May 3rd. In it they say:
“North Texas health, safety and government leaders continue looking for ways to encourage residents to get vaccinated, but as the dose supply begins to eclipse the demand, changes are on the horizon for some mass vaccination sites around the region.
In Tarrant County, the mass vaccine sites at AT&T Stadium and the Arlington eSports Arena have already closed.”
This is just one side-effect of the difficulty Dallas is facing trying to get citizens to show up for their shots according to an NBC 5 DFW article from May 4th. In it they say:
“Dallas County’s top doctor says the biggest challenging facing the county in the fight against COVID-19 is combating vaccine hesitancy and determining how to reach those who still have not received a shot.
Dallas County Health and Human Services Director Dr. Philip Huang gave an update on the county’s fight against the virus to county commissioners on Tuesday.
According to the latest data, 49.3% of Dallas County residents ages 16 and older have received at least one dose of the vaccine, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins tweeted on Tuesday.”
It looks like demand for the vaccine, isn’t living up to the supply.
