Texas school care workers now eligible for COVID-19 vaccine

Texas DSHS does say that this does not change the other groups that were already prioritized. Providers will be encouraged to vaccinate those 65 and older first.

The expansion comes after the statewide mask mandate was halted by Governor Abbott. Several teaching organizations are hoping the Texas Education Agency puts strict rules in place to help schools remain as safe as they can be.

TEA says updated guidance is coming soon.
