WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The Wichita Falls - Wichita County Public Health District announced Monday they did not receive any vaccines for week five of distribution. No other location in Wichita County reportedly received vaccines.

Health district officials say they have administered all of the original 500 doses they received and they do not know when they will receive more.

DSHS provides COVID-19 updates on their website and they also have a dashboard that shows the total doses allocated, doses administered and the number of people vaccinated.

The health district says they’ve received an influx of calls since the current dashboard shows Wichita County has vaccines that still need to be administered. However, those numbers are not correct at this time and the health district is working with DSHS and local health providers to ensure the information is updated.

Residents interested in receiving a vaccine should contact their physician or medical provider to see if they are a registered provider. Residents may also sign up for the health district’s vaccine waitlist by clicking here or by calling the Health District Hotline at (940) 761-7909.
