Representative Keith Bell Successfully Assists in Securing Funding for House District 4 Vaccine Distribution Hub

January 19, 2021

(Forney, Tx) – Tuesday, January 19th, As the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine continued to disproportionately gravitate towards urban areas, Representative Bell successfully assisted in securing Kaufman County’s remaining Cares Act allocation of $1.2 million towards establishing a vaccine distribution hub as well as a commitment from the Texas Department of Emergency Management to assist with the FEMA Public Assistance Grant.

Sworn into his second term last week, Rep. Bell was committed to making this a priority and accomplishing this as his first task. “Since the vaccine roll out started, it was clear that rural areas were being overlooked. Last week, we have had extensive discussions concerning the access and opportunity to HD 4 constituents and I am proud of the accomplishment made.”

Set to receive DSHS approval this week, the hub will provide 1,000 vaccines per week to 1A and 1B individuals in House District 4 (including Kaufman and Henderson Counties). Plans are in place to scale delivery as vaccine availability increases.
