On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: COVID-19 vaccine supply is exceeding demand in Harris County, but a majority of people still aren't vaccinated. What now? We hear how Harris County Public Health is trying to encourage more residents to get their shots.

Also this hour: We discuss the latest news in our weekly political roundup.

Then, in this month’s installment of The Full Menu, local food writers discuss their favorite places for crawfish and Cajun food in Greater Houston.

And, with recent news that the population of endangered Attwater's prairie chickens is at its highest in 28 years, we revisit our 2018 trip to a refuge outside Houston set aside just for them.
