When can everyone else get the vaccine? According to DSHS, Spring 2021 is the best estimate, but that may change. It depends on vaccine production and how quickly other vaccines become available.

 According to Krista Baty, Chief Administrative Officer for Hendrick Medical Center Brownwood, “We should receive more vaccines, however at this time we do not have an expected date. When it becomes available, we will provide a media statement with details on how to receive the vaccine.”

The Brownwood/Brown County Health Department has been notified by the State that they will be receiving vaccines as well, but no timeline has been given on when the Health Department will receive the vaccines. Several local pharmacies are registered to provide the vaccine, but when they will receive them and how much is not yet known.
