Registering for COVID-19 Vaccinations Through County Health Departments

The City of Carrollton resides in three Counties: Collin, Dallas, and Denton. COVID-19 vaccine distribution is managed by the Texas Department of State Health Services in conjunction with Collin, Dallas, and Denton County health authorities.

At this time, there are two categories of people who are eligible to receive the vaccine, depending on availability:


  • Phase 1A - Front-line healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities.
  • Phase 1B - People ages 65 and older, and those 16 years and older with at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at higher risk of severe disease or death from COVID-19, including pregnancy.

When can I sign up?

All North Texas residents can sign up for some waitlists now; however, only those in categories 1A and 1B are currently eligible to be vaccinated per the Texas Department of State Health Services rules.

Those who are not eligible now can still sign up on the Dallas and Tarrant County waitlists and will be contacted when distribution moves to their category. Denton and Collin Counties are only accepting waitlist signups for those people who are in categories 1A and 1B .
 
 

Ways to sign up

 

Vaccine registration signup is available:

  • Online for each County health department via Collin, Dallas, Denton, and Tarrant County websites if the County signup process allows it:
  • By calling the Vaccine Registration Hotlines available in Dallas, Denton, and Tarrant Counties:
    • Dallas County Health and Human Services: 855-immune9 (855-466-8639)
    • Denton County Public Health: 940-349-2585
    • Tarrant County Public Health: 817-248-6299
 
 

Do I have to sign up in the County I live in?

 

All of North Texas can now sign up with any County health department accepting signups to be placed on a waitlist for a COVID-19 vaccine up if the County signup process allows it. You do not have to live in that County, as the State is providing vaccines to County health departments with the understanding that they will serve any Texas citizen, regardless of where they live.

Carrollton residents should sign up on multiple County waitlists to ensure an appointment as soon as possible.
