12/24/2020

The City of El Paso has received 2,400 Moderna vaccinations as part of the Phase 1 distribution for those at highest risk for contracting of COVID-19, including first responders and healthcare personnel who are essential to keeping the healthcare system operational for the community.

The Moderna shipment of vaccinations contains 900 doses for emergency personnel and 1,500 for healthcare workers, including clinical personnel, 9-1-1 EMS, residents and staff at long-term care facilities, urgent/community clinics and school nurses. This group is part of Phase 1, Group A.

The City has begun dispensing the available doses to priority groups including first responders, prioritizing those on the immediate frontlines of the pandemic response and at high risk of being exposed to COVID-19. These groups include staff at testing sites, deployment teams and vaccination clinics.

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has recently determined the next COVID-19 vaccine priority group (Phase 1, Group B)—people 65 years of age and older and those 16 years of age and older with at least one chronic medical condition—will also begin receiving the vaccine, as the initial priority group continues to be addressed. As of last night, DSHS has given communities discretion to rotate groups 1A and 1B to ensure vaccines are used immediately and additional allocations will quickly follow.

Individuals who are part of either group can pre-register for the vaccine at bit.ly/C19Register and submitting the pre-registration form. Once pre-registered, residents will be notified about the availability of the vaccine and be provided with the next steps.

12/23/2020

The City of El Paso Department of Public Health (DPH) announces the next priority groups to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus are people 65 years of age and older and those 16 years of age and older with at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

The Texas Department of State Health Services has determined the next COVID-19 priority group will begin receiving the vaccine within the next few weeks.

Under Phase 1B the Texas Expert Vaccine Allocation Panel (EVAP), has identified the next high-risk groups to receive the vaccine. Groups identified include essential workers with the specified underlying medical conditions.

Those critical populations referenced by EVAP are:

• Communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and other chronic diseases;
• Teachers and school staff, to ensure that Texas children can learn in a safe environment;
• Social services workers, to ensure that those in need receive care and support;
• Workers who maintain critical infrastructure, to support the Texas economy; and
• Other frontline workers who are unable to work remotely and are, therefore, more likely to be exposed to COVID-19.

DPH will work with local vaccine providers and partners to ensure that individuals who are 65 years and older, those with the medical conditions listed below, and frontline workers in critical industries have access to the vaccine so they will be protected from COVID-19, while on the job.

The community will be advised once the COVID-19 vaccination is available for the new priority groups in Phase 1B. Information on how to schedule an appointment to get the COVID-19 vaccine will also be provided. Individuals under 65 years of age with underlying medical conditions will be required to provide an eligibility statement from their medical provider, in order to receive the vaccine.

Texas Phase 1B Vaccine Priorities:

• People 65 years of age and older
• People 16 years of age and older with at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at an increased risk for severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19, such as but not limited to:

• Cancer
• Chronic kidney disease
• Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
• Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease or cardiomyopathies
• Solid organ transplantation
• Obesity and severe obesity (Body Mass Index of 30kg/m2 or higher)
• Pregnancy
• Sickle Cell Disease
• Type 2 Diabetes

I thought there was limited boarder crossings, 3-4 hour lines can only mean what ever the officials are doing isn't working!! LoL
How about you pick up my recycling bin, since it was full before you decided to stop picking it up.its it's been full for over a month now. I am one of those who tend to have more recycle than waist. Some of us actually care about our world. Apparently the city of El Paso doesn't.
Bye Margo! Bye tRump! Cruz is walking on thin ice! Abbott has to watch his back! The voters have spoken. Time to move on.
Can we find some relief from seeming cycles of disappointment and dissatisfaction with our current society? Independent of who holds local political positions, the unrest persists. People regularly complain about a flawed society, a flawed political office, a faulty president, etc. Comments on internet platforms are characteristic of political debates where commenters bash campaigners, then harshly bash fellow commenters who disagree. Seldom can one witness a political debate where one party does not bash the other and continue to jab one another thru out the entire debate. It quickly turns into a rap battling roast. Is it not sick that we find this okay and normal, or are we just well adjusted? Can so much outer criticism be a call for inner speculation? Whether local, district, or state representative, a representative is someone who represents a wider group. Who are our representatives representing? They represent you! They represent us! We are our district. We are our city. We are our state. We are our nation. It is all a representation of us! A friend recommends the mocumentary, confessions of a time traveler – the man from 3036, it is a short 38-minute movie that can be listened to while folding clothes. Unfortunately, much of what the movie alleges to occur in the generations to come are not farfetched, all which stem from decisions we make now, including the kind of people we vote for. Many people are unconcerned with voting at a local level, yet many local representatives do not stay local and will eventually move on to represent a wider group. Innumerous criticism is made from how leaders handle a particular situation to undertakings of infrastructure. There is always however a bigger, different picture than what we physically see. Let us recall the story of the three blind mice and the elephant, where one mouse feels the tail, the other a leg, and the other the trunk. They all think they are certain of what they speak of. The mice, however, know nothing about the whole of the elephant itself. Let us step back and away from our inner panic, anxiety, critically harsh judgments, and take a calm clear look at something words cannot tell us. Let us look at a glimpse of what we can see in the essence of a sincere man. I recently saw two back to back campaign advertisements of two men running for mayor, Oscar Leeser and Dee Margo. Lessers commercial appeared first and then Dee Margos. It was Dee Margos advertisement I took a profound note of. Something about his manner was unconventional in terms of your typical politician. I noted, a soft-spoken voice, a calm demeanor, and crystal-clear sober eyes with a soft gaze. A few days later I had dinner amongst a few stand-up, authentic, charitable people from our local El Paso community. Dee Margo was spoken of in a refreshingly positive light. The conversation affirmed what I noted when I saw the campaign advertisement. Although I do not know him personally, I felt compelled to write this blog. What I took away from that evening was that this man is not a politician at heart. By that I mean he does not represent the negative stigma the term politician gets. I was told of some of the beautiful selfless volunteer and charitable work he does on his own time of which he deflects any recognition. Those who know him on a personal level are graced to know such a man. They depicted a being of inner strength, love, and an inner driving force that is reflected in his calm demeanor and presence. Many voting trends remain the same as the 2020 mayoral elections near its end but shifting our perception and changing how we look at situations and people does not have to remain like the three blind mice. We can step back and chose to see a different picture. Firstly, within ourselves, so our voting trends can change. Then our society can change, and the future of our children's children can begin to improve and not worsen. It does not have to be in theory for it is applicable now. Countless individuals still do not utilize their right to vote. Nevertheless, many freely utilize their freedom of speech to criticize the very community they are a part of. For those who never vote, we have a great opportunity right now, to be represented by a man whose heart is leading him. Dee Margo is that man. We can elect someone who is contrary to the adverse political stigma that has become the norm. RIGHT NOW, we have a chance that does not come around often. A special time to elect if not but symbolically spirit over ego and give our local area a chance to be affected by that inner driving force of light in a man of spirit to represent the spirit of man.

Thank you so much and Let’s Celebrate!!!! On 5 December 2020, an aging beautiful strong Black Entrepreneur known as Ms. Estine Davis is celebrating 70 years of accomplishments on her birthday in the community loves dearly. This determined lady known as Ms. Estine to everyone has been cutting hair for more than 69 years in El Paso, Texas. Ms. Estine is the owner of Estine’s Eastside Barbershop and has owned her barbershop for over 61 years. She is one of the first Black Woman to own and operate her own business in El Paso, Texas. Her barbershop has been located at the corner of Piedras and Alameda since the mid 1960’s. Estine’s Eastside Barbershop has been a fixture in the history of El Paso and an anchor in the community for more than 69 years. She started cutting hair in Fort Bliss, Texas, in the 1950’s to accommodate the soldiers. At a time, a female barber was rare, even in El Paso.
