These Dallas-Fort Worth providers are among Texas’ 82 vaccination hubs

Updated January 30th at 8pm: Revised to include information about additional vaccination centers.

Fourteen agencies in Dallas-Fort Worth will serve as COVID-19 vaccination centers as Texas adopts a centralized approach to the distribution of the shots.

In Dallas County, the County Health Department, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Parkland Health and Hospital System, Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Garland City Health Department, and Kay Bailey Hutchinson Center are designated as hubs by the Department of State Health Services .

In Tarrant County, the county health department, Texas Health Resources, and Arlington Fire Department are designated as hubs by the state.

There are four hubs in Collin County: the Allen Fire Department, the Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in Plano, the McKinney Fire Department, and the Collin County Health Services.

The fourteenth hub is the Denton County Health Department.

Rockwall and Ellis counties are not on the state’s list. Providers do not only vaccinate people who live in their respective counties.

Why is Texas creating vaccination centers?

State officials said their goal is to ship most of the vaccines that Texas has allocated to major hubs to streamline vaccinations.

In the week of February 1, Texas will receive 520,425 first doses of the vaccine and 188,225 second doses, according to a news release. More than 377.00 cans go to hub providers.

“The idea is to concentrate much of the vaccine in a smaller number of locations so that there is a more centralized way to vaccinate people,” said Chris Van Deusen, spokesman for the state health department, told the Dallas Morning News.

Van Deusen added that the state had asked the selected providers to also vaccinate people in the area.

Who can get a vaccine now at one of the hubs?

Anyone in the first two tiers – phase 1A and 1B – of the state vaccination priority list can get vaccinated at any of the hubs, regardless of where they live, according to the state health department.

Phase 1A includes frontline healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities, and Phase 1B includes people 65 years of age or older or those with chronic conditions who are at greater risk if they contract COVID-19.

Do people need appointments?

The state urged anyone looking for a vaccine at any of the 82 hubs not to just show up. The health department advises people to first find out if walk-ups are acceptable.

In North Texas, several vendors have set up registration pages where people can indicate that they are eligible and want a vaccine. The state health department has provided links to the websites of each vaccination center.

What are Dallas County’s plans to distribute the vaccine?

Dallas County has set up a “mega” vaccination facility in Fair Park, where the county plans to vaccinate thousands of people every day.

Recordings are only available by appointment to people who have registered online.

Individuals who enroll through the county health department can be vaccinated at any of the city’s other hubs, including UT Southwestern, the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Center, or the Parkland Hospital.

Are these the only places where vaccines are available?

Those eligible for admission could obtain vaccines through other providers. The state has created a map to help find vendors offering the vaccine.
