We are now at the stage of the coronavirus vaccine in Texas where everyone over the age of 18 is now eligible to get vaccinated. The announcement was made last week that all Texas adults would eligible beginning this week to get the COVID-19 shot. Those who are 16 and older can get the Pfizer vaccine.

According to the Texas Tribune, over ten million vaccination doses have been administered in the state. Thirteen percent of the state's population has been fully vaccinated, and every day more and more people are getting vaccinated.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted on Monday that seven day COVID-19 positivity rate was at 4.96% and that hospitalizations and deaths had dropped to a 3 month low. The Governor also encouraged people to get the shot as Texas was on pace to administer two million shots this week.

This is all very good news and shows that Texas and the nation seem to be on the right path as far as shots go and how many people are getting sick. But this doesn't mean everyone is ready to rush out and get vaccinated. On the show today, I had many listeners to said they were not at all interested in getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

While there are many who can't wait to get the shot in the arm, those not wanting to get the vaccine often say they don't trust it or they want to wait and see how people react to it before getting a shot.

How do you feel about the vaccine? Are you ready to get the shot? Have you already? Or are you still in a wait and see pattern? Let us know in our poll below.
