It’s Easier Than Ever To Get A COVID-19 Vaccine In Dallas

DALLAS –When COVID-19 vaccines arrived in Texas getting an appointment was like trying to get front row tickets to see George Strait in concert, difficult if not impossible. Waitlists were long, intimidating, and people were driving 3+ hours away from home to get their shots.

Now, the supply is greater than the demand and Dallas County residents can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment for their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at the Fair Park Community Vaccination Center. To schedule the shot, you just register and make an appointment through the Dallas County website. Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) has transitioned from the registration waitlist to a vaccination scheduler now that vaccine supply has increased and the waitlist has been depleted.

Also, if you are a resident 55 and older you may receive a COVID-19 vaccination at Fair Park without an appointment or pre-registering on the website. Just go to Gate 10 or Gate 2 at Fair Park with a photo ID during operating hours.
