HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — As the first of many COVID-19 vaccine doses are making their way to distribution sites across the United States, one of Houston’s experts on vaccines and the coronavirus says all eyes are on this rollout.

“I think the key to remember is there’s going to be a lot of stuff happening in this 24-hour news cycles and not to get too exercised about the ups and the downs,” explained Dr. Peter Hotez, the Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine.

Hotez spoke with ABC13 on Sunday afternoon for the first time since the Pfizer vaccine became approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

He said he is on the waiting list to receive his dose.
