Brazoria County Judge Matt Sebesta Continues to request COVID-19 Vaccines

The first week of February, 10,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine arrived in Brazoria County. This large allocation was a one-time allotment provided by the State because of unused vaccines by long-term health care facilities and dispersed to Counties throughout Texas. County Judge Matt Sebesta had requested 20,000 vaccine doses from the State, but only half (10,000) were allocated and received in the County. Brazoria County Health Department, Kelsey Seybold/City of Pearland, Community Health Network, UTMB Angleton Danbury Campus, and Sweeny Community Hospital were the five facilities to receive portions of the 10,000 doses. By Sunday, February 8th, these five community partners had dispersed the vaccine to individuals that met the Phase 1A & 1B requirements at locations throughout the County. “Partnerships from top to bottom have been phenomenal through this whole process of requesting, receiving, and dispensing the COVID-19 vaccine,” says County Judge Matt Sebesta. “The County will continue to partner with providers to get the COVID-19 vaccine into the arms of those that want it,” says Judge Sebesta. The Judge will continue to request and push for substantial vaccine allocations for Brazoria County each and every week.
