Arlington Fire's Public Health Building

With the presence of the more contagious Delta variant, Tarrant County’s COVID-19 community spread level rating has increased to “high” and local hospitals are reporting a substantial increase in hospitalizations this month for people infected with the coronavirus. The Arlington Fire Department continues to encourage residents ages 12 and older to get a COVID-19 vaccine to protect themselves and the community during the pandemic.

Arlington Fire Department is holding weekly vaccine clinics at its Public Health Building, located at 2920 S. Cooper St. No appointments are necessary for the vaccine clinics, which are typically available between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please note, the clinic will be closed this Friday, Sept. 17.

Residents ages 18 and up can choose between the two-dose Moderna or Pfizer vaccines. The Pfizer vaccine is available to residents ages 12 and older. Please visit the Arlington Fire Department's Facebook page or call the Arlington Fire Department at 817-575-3700 if you have any questions, including whether you may be eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine booster.

These clinics are convenient for those who still seeking their first COVID-19 vaccine or for those who have missed their second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine. Vaccines are eligible for those 12 years of age and older. Anyone under the age of 18 years old will need a parent or guardian on site for consent.

Arlington residents who are homebound because of mobility or medical issues can request that the Arlington Fire Department provide a COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccines will also be provided to caregivers in the home. Please call the Fire Department at 817-575-3700 to request a home visit if you meet these criteria.

Numerous other options are available for residents seeking COVID-19 vaccines through doctor’s offices, pharmacies, and other providers. At least 50 providers in the Arlington city limit on the Vaccine Finder website, an online tool that helps people find pharmacies and other locations that offer COVID-19 vaccines nearby.
