Phase two of the vaccine rollout will begin slowly as vaccine production ramps up. The supply of vaccines should be enough to accommodate anyone who wants to get the shot. Doses of COVID-19 vaccines will eventually be made available in smaller, more rural clinics and, potentially, at drive-through locations. Healthcare providers will be able to charge an administration fee for administering the vaccines but they won’t be able to charge for the vaccines themselves, according to the Department of Health. During phase three of the vaccine rollout, public health officials anticipate having plenty of vaccine doses and expect slower demand for them. |

The vaccine panel, which was appointed by Dr. John Hellerstedt, commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services and does not meet in public, has yet to decide on the third group to get the vaccine. Among the possibilities: essential workers and people with underlying conditions that make them more vulnerable to sickness from the virus, including people who are 65 and older but otherwise healthy. Other questions the panel must answer: Among essential workers, a broad category, which professions should get vaccinated before others? And most basically, who is an "essential worker"?|

Phase 2 this group would include workers with a moderate risk of spreading the coronavirus, because they can’t work from home and have some contact with other people. These would be teachers, child care workers and airline staff, among others. Phase 2 also covers groups who have disproportionately suffered from the pandemic or are considered at higher risk of getting more sick, or dying, if they catch COVID-19.
