Tarrant County Administering COVID-19 Vaccine
Tarrant County Public Health is now administering the COVID-19 vaccine to persons 65 years of age or older and anyone 18 and older with at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. If you fall into either category and you would like the vaccine, you can register at www.tarrantcounty.com/covidvaccine or by calling 817-248-6299.

There is currently more demand for the vaccine than doses available, but new shipments are being received by Tarrant County weekly. Please be patient. After you register, when it’s your turn to be vaccinated, Tarrant County Public Health will contact you by phone with your scheduled appointment time and location. There is no charge to get the vaccine and it is being administered on a voluntary basis to those who want it.

The City of North Richland Hills does not have vaccines to administer to the public. We are
assisting Tarrant County, the City of Hurst and others in operating the county's vaccination center in Hurst. All vaccinations at this center and other centers operated by Tarrant County are by appointment only. Anyone who does not have an appointment will be turned away.
