Judge says Collin County needs more vaccine doses

Collin County’s top elected official said the state has not sent enough vaccine doses there.

Judge Chris Hill said the county has the worst ratio of doses received compared to population in the state.

He said there are several mega centers in Collin County ready to vaccinate thousands of people per day but the doses haven’t arrived.

There are about 90,000 people waiting on Collin County’s vaccination list.
