From the Introduction: "Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) will manage COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] vaccine distribution in accordance with the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). To build a robust base of providers, DSHS will initiate an outreach campaign to potential COVID-19 vaccine providers. It is estimated that up to 14,000 providers across Texas may register to order and provide COVID-19 vaccine. Texas DSHS will seek to direct vaccine in the manner that best reaches recommended target groups while recognizing there may be more than one reasonable approach to doing so. This effort may still leave gaps in vaccination services for certain high-risk individuals or groups, and the state will plan to fill such gaps using vaccine strike teams. In addition, Texas recognizes that vaccine hesitancy presents a significant challenge to optimal uptake of COVID-19 vaccines as they become available. Assuring vaccine confidence in our communities by sharing credible and accurate information will be a key activity."
