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.

When can I sign up?

  • As of May 13, 2021 all individuals ages 12+ are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in the State of Texas, depending on availability.

  • Texas DSHS has directed vaccine providers to prioritize people 80 years old or older when scheduling appointments and accommodate anyone in that age group who presents for vaccination, whether or not they have an appointment, by immediately moving them to the front of the line.
 
 

Ways to sign up

 

Vaccine registration signup is available:

  • Via the Texas Department of State Health Services (Texas DSHS):
    • Online: https://getthevaccine.dshs.texas.gov/
      • Residents will be notified by email or text for when and where to get the vaccine. If there’s not an available clinic nearby they will be directed to other places to get the vaccine.

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

 

All of North Texas ages 12 or older can now sign up with any County health department to be placed on a waitlist for a COVID-19 vaccine. 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.

 
 

What if I don't have health insurance?

COVID-19 vaccines are 100% free for every individual living in the United States -including those without health insurance. Individuals should NOT be billed for a COVID-19 vaccine. 

Everyone is eligible for COVID-19 services, no matter their immigration status. Testing, treatment or vaccinations paid for by the federal government will not affect anyone’s immigration status or be shared with immigration agencies. 

 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has created a webpage that helps uninsured individuals find no-cost COVID-19 testing, treatment, and vaccines. For more details, click here.

 

How is the COVID-19 vaccine distributed?
