‘Demand Exceeds Supply,’ Texas Hospital Association, Pharmacies Urge Patience on Vaccine Availability



TEXAS – With the current limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines, the Texas Hospital Association said people seeking vaccines should be patient as entities work to inoculate as many willing people as they can.

Carrie Williams is a spokesperson for the Texas Hospital Association, which represents more than 450 hospitals in the state.

“The demand exceeds supply, and there are not doses available at every single hospital,” Williams told NBC 5 Wednesday. “In fact, there are still numerous hospitals mostly in the rural areas of Texas that have not been allocated vaccines yet.”

Just like how every region in Texas is different, Williams said so is every hospital and city. What is uniform is how people should approach accessibility at this point in time, Williams said.
