HOUSTON (AP) — Texas health officials say the state expects to receive fewer vaccine doses for use next week because of production problems with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
The Texas Department of State Health Services said Friday more than 1.9 million COVID-19 vaccine doses will be shipped to providers across Texas.
The state will be getting 350,000 fewer doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for use next week.
Johnson & Johnson had to discard 15 million doses of its coronavirus vaccine last month because the batch did not meet quality standards.
Nearly 31% of Texas’ population has been given at least one vaccine dose, with nearly 17% being fully vaccinated.
