The Department of State Health Services has announced the majority of COVID-19 vaccine arriving to Texas in the coming weeks will be allocated to larger metropolitan areas that can support vaccinating 100,000 residents or more.

Johnson County has worked with Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley and the State to allow for Johnson County residents to have the option to be vaccinated in Tarrant County. Vaccination is still limited to people in Phase 1A and 1B as outlined in the Texas Vaccination Plan

Those that don’t qualify in the Phase 1A or 1B groups, please be patient. The State will roll out additional groups in the future as vaccines become more available.

Tarrant County is operating on a registration system. Once you receive your confirmation of registration, it may be some time before you receive your scheduled appointment time as this is based on availability of vaccines as well as prioritization policies.

When you attend your appointment, be prepared to stand in line as staff works to vaccine a large number of individuals. If standing in line for an extended time is not an option for you, please come to the front of the line and let the medical screeners know and they will make accommodations. Some lines are outside to aid social distancing and further assure client safety. Please dress appropriately.
