Are Dallas prisons the last place in America that people will get vaccines?

DALLAS – Shelby Hudson just wanted a test. In early December, Hudson, who is incarcerated in the Dallas County Jail, realized she couldn’t smell or taste. She also had a headache and her roommate told her she felt Hudson was “on fire.”

Nonetheless, the 36-year-old said a guard rejected her request for a COVID-19 test. She asked again three days later, then five days later. Each time, she says, her request has been turned down.

Hudson was furious, but not surprised.

“It takes a lot of noise to get anything here,” she told The Daily Beast. “Tylenol, toilet paper, tampons, whatever. You have to scream and scream if you want them to listen.
