AT&T Stadium

AT&T Stadium, in Arlington's Entertainment District, will soon be a COVID-19 Community Vaccination Center. The White House made the announcement Wednesday. The site is one of three new large-scale vaccination centers coming to Texas, including Fair Park in Dallas and NRG Stadium in Houston.

Governor Greg Abbott says the sites will be operated by FEMA in partnership with the state. Work is underway to convert the sites now. They are expected to be open to eligible members of the public beginning Feb. 24, 2021.

"These mass community sites will allow us to expand access to COVID-19 vaccinations in underserved communities and help us mitigate the spread of the virus," Gov. Abbott said in a statement. "Thank you to our partners at FEMA for working with the State of Texas to establish these vaccination sites and help us protect our most vulnerable."

Registration details for vaccination appointments at AT&T Stadium will be released in the coming days.

The White House looked at a number of factors when selecting Community Vaccination Centers including socioeconomic status, household data, minority status, languages, housing types and transportation. The White House also acknowledged football stadiums are more than just sporting venues in Texas — they are community gathering spots.

The Arlington Fire Department will continue vaccinating residents at Esports Stadium Arlington + Expo Center in partnership with Tarrant County. Click here for more information on vaccine registration.
