Cleburne Fire administering COVID-19 vaccine as outlined by Texas Vaccination Plan

Texas COVID-19 vaccine principals outlined

Individuals who qualify under the State of Texas’s COVID-19 Vaccine Allocation Definition Phase 1A and 1B are now eligible to receive a vaccine. The Cleburne Fire Department is administering the Moderna vaccine.  

Phase 1B includes:

  • People 65 years of age and older
  • People 18 years of age (Moderna vaccine) and older with at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19, such as but not limited to:
    • Cancer
    • Chronic kidney disease
    • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
    • Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease or cardiomyopathies
    • Solid organ transplantation
    • Obesity and severe obesity (body mass index of 30 kg/m2 or higher)
    • Pregnancy
    • Sickle cell disease
    • Type 2 diabetes mellitus  

If you qualify, please call 817-645-0964 to schedule an appointment during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. The vaccine supply is limited and appointments will only be scheduled based on current availability. As additional shipments of the vaccine arrive, new appointments will be scheduled. Vaccinations will only be administered to those who have scheduled an appointment, no walk-ups.

Between local front-line healthcare workers and people in Phase 1B, we have allocated the 500 doses we received from the State. We will accept more appointments for vaccinations when we receive additional doses and will post any updates on Cleburne.net.

Other vaccination locations in Johnson County currently include the HEB in Cleburne, the HEB in Burleson, and Brookshire’s in Joshua.  Please contact their pharmacy departments for more information such as vaccine availability and scheduling.
