Dear Friends,

This week, Pfizer/BioNTech reported that their COVID-19 vaccine was effectivein preventing infection among teens ages 12-15 in a late-stage trial.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced an expansion in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program for COVID-19 vaccinations from 17,000 participating pharmacies to 40,000 stores.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will begin enrolling adults in an early-phase clinical trial evaluating the Moderna vaccine targeting a more contagious coronavirus variant originally found in South Africa.

The Food and Drug Administration authorized several over-the-counter, no prescription needed COVID-19 tests when used for serial screening.


Texas Update:

As of March 29th, all adults in Texas are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Week 16 COVID-19 vaccine allocations will be posted here.

Until next time, this is your doctor's note.
