Austin, TX — This week Representatives Erin Zwiener (D-Driftwood), Brooks Landgraf (R-Odessa), Jarvis Johnson (D-Houston), and Justin Holland (R-Rockwall) teamed up to get vaccinated against COVID-19 now that all Texans are eligible to receive the vaccine.
This bipartisan group of Texas Legislators is ready to do their part in protecting themselves and others against COVID-19.
“Every eligible Texan should get the vaccine when they are able and willing,” said Rep. Holland. “We need to get folks back to work, get our kids fully back in school face-to-face with teachers, and protect our most vulnerable. I was glad to do my part.”
All Texans over the age of 16 are now eligible for the vaccine, and vaccine availability is improving around the state.
Much like mask wearing and hand washing, vaccinations are an essential part of combatting the coronavirus. COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are declining, and each administered vaccine is one step closer to getting back to normal.
“Call your doctor, check your local pharmacies, and sign up for hubs in your area,” said Rep. Johnson. “Texas is receiving more vaccines every week, so everyone who wants one should be able to get an appointment soon.”

“Beating COVID-19 isn’t a red or blue issue,” said Rep. Zwiener. “I’m so grateful to the medical researchers who developed these safe and effective vaccines, to the teams getting them out into our communities, and to my colleagues for helping get the word out across Texas.”
