CITY OF HOUSTON LATE WITH THE ANTIBIOTICS!

TEXAS SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY STUDENTS LINE UP FOR A PREVENTATIVE MEASURE!

Dozens of Texas Southern University students found themselves patiently standing in the rain and waiting on the city of Houston to get it together Monday afternoon. They were scheduled to get antibiotic pills. This comes after one student died and another was hospitalized at the school last week. The medicine arrived more than a hour late. I asked a representative from Houston’s Health Department why it took so long getting there and all I was told -” it was on it’s way.” I’m not clear why the city didn’t send the doses with the employees who arrived hours earlier. TSU provided the facilities for the students but the city dropped the ball on their end. I’m told the shots arrived after 3. The students, who began forming a line at 12:30pm, were told the vaccine would be given out at 2 pm. Despite the delay many of them remained in the rain to get their shots. Just an observation behind the scenes by The Insite!

Note: The Insite received a call from the Houston health department saying the students were given pills instead of shots. I’m told vaccine shots take 3 weeks to kick in while pills are much quicker!
