Coronavirus Vaccine

Several options are available, from pop-up clinics to home visits, to help Arlington residents receive COVID-19 vaccinations for free to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Pop-Up Clinic This Saturday at Meadowbrook Recreation Center

Tarrant County residents are invited to a community event that will offer free boxes of fresh food, free, discreet HIV and STD testing, and free COVID-19 vaccinations for people ages 12 and older. The Know Your Status event is scheduled between 9 a.m. and noon this Saturday, June 26 at Meadowbrook Recreation Center, 1400 Dugan St.

The event is hosted by the Chris Howell Foundation in partnership with City of Arlington, Arlington Fire Department and Tarrant County Public Health.

“We are so committed to wellness awareness because we believe that knowledge is power,” said Dominique Bryant Howell, president of the Chris Howell Foundation. “This information is especially critical within BIPOC communities where COVID-19 and HIV affections are rising at disproportionate rates.”

 No registration is needed. Food boxes, provided by a Tarrant area food bank, will be distributed while supplies last. People under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

“We are honored to participate in such an important public health event,” said Don Crowson, City of Arlington Fire Chief/Director of Emergency Management. “We want to do our part to help the nation reach its 70 percent vaccination goal, while also providing a critical service to underserved communities where the need is the greatest.”
