Global health leaders ask for less noise and showmanship and more Covid19 vaccines.
Director Stephen, head of the city of Houston Health Department responded to a question that Global health expert in Global health communication, Dr. Ntuba Akwo Thompson asked him by saying, the is Covid 19 vaccines shortage and agreed with Dr. Akwo Ntuba Thompson that 8000 vials of Covid19 vaccines a week for his health department that caters to close to 2.5 million Houston residents are very small...
Of the 8000 vials governor, Greg Abbot says the state sent to Houston for the week starting on the 11th of January 2021, more than 1000 of the vials in the consignment were taken out last Friday and used at the Minute Maid vaccination clinics.
The numbers are so small and make it impossible for Global health experts to call what is happening in Houston today mass vaccinations. Yes, masses have not been vaccinated with the multimillion Houston populations.
Vaccination of many people in the same space has many advantages and disadvantages. Herd immunity happens most times after mass vaccinations. The percentages of the Houston and Texas populations vaccinated so far are still very very low to meet mass vaccination definitions.
Harris County is the second biggest county in America and Houston is the fourth biggest city, demographics which must help drive the quantity of Covid19 vaccine vial received.
