Why has this posh Houston facility put COVID-19 vaccines ahead of most people?

The Montebello condominium complex in downtown Houston bills itself as one of the city’s “luxury skyscrapers” with amenities like valet parking, concierge service, and a swimming pool. Recently, it added a new benefit: COVID-19 vaccines for its elderly residents.

As healthcare workers and seniors across the country struggle to get their hands on a COVID-19 vaccine in the first wave of inoculations, the Montebello seems to have gotten it.

About 60 residents of the upscale condo complex have been vaccinated, the building’s general manager told The Daily Beast on Thursday, although they are not on the Texas public vaccine distribution list.

“The state of Texas authorized it,” said Montebello general manager Daniel Hancock. “We are working with a distributor … it’s a blessing that we were able to get it.”
