(KWTX) – Delivery delays forced health officials in Bell County to shuffle vaccination schedules as COVID-19 claimed 32 more lives in Central Texas and more than 630 lives statewide since Friday, according to data released Monday by the Texas Department of State Health Services.

The appointments of Bell County residents scheduled to receive vaccinations on Monday and Tuesday were shifted to Wednesday and Thursday because of a delay in shipment of 3,900 doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

Data were incomplete because of the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday, but state data Monday showed 12 additional deaths in Bell County, three in Coryell County, four in Hill County and six in McLennan County.

Additional deaths were also reported in Freestone, Hamilton, Limestone, Mills, Navarro and Robertson County.

According to state data Monday, at least 951 Central Texas residents diagnosed with the virus have died, including 208 Bell County residents, 20 more than the local count of 188; 20 Bosque County residents; 42 Coryell County residents, 20 more than the local count of 22; 22 Falls County residents; 29 Freestone County residents; 21 Hamilton County residents; 47 Hill County residents; 17 Lampasas County residents; 28 Leon County residents; 34 Limestone County residents; 341 McLennan County residents, 16 more than the local count of 335; 18 Milam County residents; 15 Mills County residents; 70 Navarro County residents, one fewer than the local count of 71; 24 Robertson County residents, and 15 San Saba County residents.

At least 381 additional case of the virus have been confirmed since Friday in Central Texas, raising the regional total to 55,876.

DSHS reported 10,728 additional cases Monday, 10,110 of them new.

Since Friday, 47,714 additional cases have been confirmed statewide.

The agency reported 46 additional deaths Monday, increasing the statewide toll to 32,084.

In Trauma Service Area L, which includes Bell, Coryell, Hamilton, Lampasas, Milam and Mills counties, at least 228 COVID-19 patients were hospitalized Monday accounting for about 26% all hospitalizations and filling about 20% of available beds.

At least 165 COVID-19 patients were hospitalized Monday in Trauma Service Area M, which includes McLennan, Bosque, Falls, Hill and Limestone counties, accounting for about 36% of all hospitalizations and occupying about 26% of available beds, above the 15% ceiling that triggers capacity reductions under orders Gov. Greg Abbott issued on Sept. 17 and Oct. 7.

About 15.9 million molecular tests have been administered statewide.

The Lab Test Date positivity Monday was 16.27%, down from 17.43% on Friday.

Experts say a positivity rate of 5% or less indicates the virus is under control.

VACCINATIONS

The state has designated five vaccine hub providers in Central Texas including the Bell County Public Health District, the Coryell Health Medical Clinic in Gatesville, Falls Community Hospital and Clinic in Marlin; Ascension Providence Health Center in Waco; the Waco-McLennan County Health District.

Now eligible for vaccination are those covered by Phase 1A of the state’s vaccination distribution plan, including frontline healthcare workers and residents and employees of long-term care facilities and those covered by Phase 1B of the plan including residents 65 and older and residents 16 and older with medical conditions that put them at risk of severe COVID-19 illness.

The Bell County Public Health District was scheduled to receive 3,900 doses this week, Falls Community Hospital 975 doses, the Waco-McLennan County Health District 1,500 doses, and Ascension Providence 1,950 doses.

The Bell County health district, which administered just more than 3,900 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine by appointment last week at the Killeen Community Center at 2201 East Veterans Memorial Blvd. and at a second site at 220 West Avenue D in Temple, did not receive the second shipment of 3,900 doses on Monday as scheduled.

“We have been closely monitoring shipping and tracking details since Sunday,” health district Director Dr. Amanda Robison-Chadwell said Monday.

Because the Pfizer vaccine is frozen and requires time to thaw, delivery Tuesday will preclude Tuesday vaccination appointments, she said.

Because of the rescheduling of Monday and Tuesday appointments, some residents will have to wait until next week to be vaccinated, she said.

The first doses were administered to frontline healthcare workers, first responders, essential workers and residents of Coryell Health RehabLiving and Assisted & Independent Living at The Oaks, as well as Hillview Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Residents who want to be added to the list for the vaccine should call (254) 248-6381.

Copperas Cove has also posted an online survey in order to accurately judge the amount of vaccine needed in the community.

Veterans can get up-to-date information on VA’s VA COVID-19 vaccine webpage, which launched on Dec. 11, may sign up for regular updates on the vaccine on the vaccine on the VA’s Stay Informed page, and may contact their primary care providers through www.myhealth.va.gov or by calling 1-800-423-2111.
