BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - On March 29, Texas is opening up COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to all adults in the state. The move comes as vaccine hubs, like the Brazos County COVID-19 Vaccination Hub, struggle to fill appointments with Phase 1A-C residents.

Based on state data on vaccinations and estimated population, the following chart shows how many Brazos County residents in each of the state’s recorded age groups remained unvaccinated, have received one dose, or have been fully vaccinated.
