COVID 19 VACCINATION INFORMATION AS OF MONDAY JANUARY 11
City of Dallas is recommending that everyone first reach out to their health care provider to see whether they are offering the Covid 19 Vaccine.
Vaccines in larger quantities are coming to North Texas and to Dallas County, so if they are not available currently, they should be soon.
State of Texas Health & Human Services Vaccine Information can be found here which includes a list of prioritization groups.
- Dallas County is a vaccine distributor for Dallas County residents only. As of today January 11, the City and County have partnered to open a mega vaccine site at Fair Park with plans to vaccinate 2,000 residents daily. You can sign up to receive the vaccine here and visit the full website here which has more information about the order in which vaccines will be distributed. After you sign up, Dallas County will reach out to you directly when you are eligible to receive the vaccine. For those of you who already have a schedule vaccine or will in the near future, signage and volunteers all around Fair Park will guide you where to park. Once parked you will complete a short questionnaire and be directed to the Tower Building to get the vaccine. Once vaccinated, you will be directed to the next building where you will be observed for 15 minutes.
- A list of all locations who have received vaccine doses are listed here

- Kroger Pharmacies also currently has the vaccine and are in the process of vaccinating individuals in the 1A category. They hope to begin vaccinating residents in the 1B category this week. We will provide information as available.
- Healing Hands is also a very local resource for vaccines in Vickery Midtown for the 1B Status eligible patients when they receive vaccines.
