Tarrant County - Vaccine Registration

As directed by the Texas Department of State Health Services, Tarrant County Public Health, along with other Texas-based health entities, is providing initial vaccinations to those most at risk of exposure to COVID-19. These people have been placed in two groups, designated as Phase 1A and 1B. More details regarding these groups follow. If you qualify for the vaccine under the Phase 1A or 1B categories, please pre-register for an appointment. Those who show up without appointments will be turned away.

If you don’t qualify in the Phase 1A or 1B groups, please be patient. The State will roll out additional groups in the coming weeks and months ahead. Public Health expects regular vaccine shipments going forward.
