From The Texas Tribune: 

Health care workers will be the first people in Texas to receive a COVID-19 vaccine once one receives emergency approval from the U.S. government, and on Monday a state panel of vaccine experts and politicians revealed which workers in the health field will receive top priority.

The “first-tier” recipients, according to the panel’s new guidelines, include:

Sarah Self-Walbrick

Among a crowd of hundreds outside of Lubbock's Citizens Tower, three stood tall in the center holding signs. A bright pink one read, “I stand with the Planned Parenthood.” They positioned their messages to face Jim Baxa, the leader of West Texas Right to Life.


“We’re just here to pray over the men who are making decisions on the lives of little babies today,” he said.
