Garland Health Department Temporarily Closing COVID-19 Vaccine Waitlist

Vaccination 360x250

The Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) has recently announced that all adults will be eligible for COVID vaccinations effective Monday, March 29, and that people over the age of 80 should be prioritized.

The Garland Health Department (GHD) has continued to experience a high “no-show rate” during recent vaccination events even after multiple attempts to contact those on the waitlist.  

Because of these challenges, GHD is temporarily closing our vaccine registration site as we work through the current waitlist of more than 20,000. We want to identify and provide vaccines to those who still wish to receive them during our mass vaccination events at Homer B. Johnson Stadium and at the Garland Public Health Clinic.

This week alone, TDSHS indicates that no less than 65 providers were allocated 146,000 doses of COVID vaccines in the four metroplex counties of Dallas, Collin, Tarrant and Denton.  

Please check this website for updates and register for the vaccine with other vaccine providers at vaccinefinder.org or contact your doctor and/or area pharmacies for additional options.

For everyone on Garland’s vaccine waiting list, if you receive your vaccine from another source, please email GPH@GarlandTX.gov or call 972-205-3900 to remove your name from our list. Your consideration will enable us to more quickly vaccinate qualified people.

Those who receive their first dose from the City of Garland will be notified when their second dose is scheduled and available. 

Updates will be posted to GarlandTX.gov/COVIDVaccine and to the City’s Twitter and Facebook pages as they become available.
