ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – After receiving 4,500 additional doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine on Monday, the Arlington Fire Department will begin vaccinating eligible residents and workers once again at Esports Stadium Arlington & Expo Center starting Tuesday, Jan. 5.
Residents are required to register through Tarrant County Public Health to receive the vaccine.READ MORE: Hostage Shot During Standoff In Texas
TCHP will assign a specific number of people to the Arlington’s vaccination site located at 1200 Ballpark Way.
Those receiving TCPH vaccine notification will be validated when they arrive at the Arlington site.
Those without TCPH confirmation will be turned away.
Arlington’s initial intake process is no longer valid as we move towards a single coordination point for all Tarrant County residents.
The single coordination point is essential from a vaccination management perspective because the mass vaccination effort may last for months.
The hours of operation for the Arlington site will be 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.READ MORE: Man Takes A Shovel, Rips Out Metal Fencing At Mahatma Gandhi Memorial In Irving
