Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) announced guidelines for the initial distribution of vaccinations in Texas. According to this plan, COVID-19 vaccines will be distributed throughout the state based on the following criteria:

In addition to private medical offices who have registered to be vaccination distributers, Texas health officials have begun shipping the COVID-19 vaccine to 'hubs' within the state. Both Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) and Denton County Public Health have been designated as vaccine hubs, and both counties have created websites from which residents in Phase 1A and Phase 1B can sign up to receive the vaccine.
Health officials have opened a 'mega' vaccination site at Fair Park in Dallas. Interested parties should register online to receive the vaccine at this location. Registration is open to Dallas County and non-Dallas County residents.
Visit the Vaccine Interest Portal to verify your eligibility to receive the vaccine and receive updates as appointments for vaccination become available. Registration is open to Denton County and non-Denton County residents.
While vaccine supply is extremely limited, it is anticipated that both counties will receive additional supply in the coming weeks and months.
In addition to Dallas and Denton Counties, other vaccination hubs (or sites) have been identified by the State. The goal of these hubs is to provide more people the vaccine and a simpler way to sign up for an appointment. Providers will focus on vaccinating areas and populations hardest hit by COVID‑19. Registration at the hub sites is not limited to residents of the site's location county. You may sign up to receive the vaccination from any hub site, regardless of where you live. You may also sign up at multiple sites. View the list of vaccine hub providers.

What action is the City of Coppell taking?
The City of Coppell is working with Dallas County, the State of Texas, and approved vendors to ensure that residents are provided access to the Covid-19 vaccine as soon as it becomes available to the general public.
Receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is voluntary. It will take months to manufacture and distribute enough vaccine for everyone who wants to be vaccinated. Until then, continue to do your part to prevent transmission of COVID-19 by wearing a mask and staying 6 feet from others who live outside of your household. Stay home when possible and wash your hands frequently!

What to Expect If You Get the Vaccine: Because COVID-19 is a new disease with new vaccines, you may have questions about what happens before, during, and after your appointment to get vaccinated.
