Despite being the second most populous state and administering more vaccines on average than the top 10 biggest states on a per capita basis, Texas has received fewer vaccines than the four most populous states: California, Florida, New York and Pennsylvania.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, 31,161,075 doses of the vaccine have been distributed across the U.S as of Monday. That means that 9,438 doses are allocated per 100,000 people.
