COVID-19 vaccination

The Arlington Fire Department received 4,500 additional doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine today and will begin vaccinating eligible residents and workers once again at Esports Stadium Arlington & Expo Center starting Tuesday, Jan. 5.

The vaccine will not be available on a first-come, first-serve basis this week. To receive the vaccine, you must register online through Tarrant County Public Health, which will assign a specific number of people to the Arlington’s vaccination site at 1200 Ballpark Way. The Arlington Fire Department will validate registration on site. If you show up without registering in advance, you’ll be provided information for how to register on the Tarrant County Public Health website, which will allow you to be scheduled for a future date based on vaccine supply and state vaccination guidelines.

Arlington’s initial intake process is no longer valid as we move towards a single coordination point for all Tarrant County residents.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 a.m. to 4 p.m. The days of operation will be determined based on vaccine dose allotment. Regular updates will be provided on the Arlington Fire Department Facebook page and then forwarded to other social media sites.

Individuals who fall in groups Phase 1A and Phase 1B are currently eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. These are typically first responders, healthcare workers, and individuals over 65 or who have certain chronic medical conditions that place them at a higher risk.

The Arlington Fire Department asks for patience as we continue to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine as quickly and as efficiently as possible. 

Other entities in Arlington and Tarrant County are also providing COVID-19 vaccinations, including Tarrant County Public Health clinics, JPS clinics and individual pharmacies. For more information on where the COVID-19 vaccine may be available, please visit the Texas Department of Health and Human Services website

Disclaimer: Process and procedures for the distribution of the vaccine may change due to vaccine availability and evolving vaccination protocols at the national and state level. Please continue to monitor the City of Arlington’s coronavirus website,, the Arlington Fire Department's Facebook page, and Tarrant County Public Health’s coronavirus information site.
