Where can I sign up for a COVID-19 vaccine? Here are some providers in North Texas that will alert you

You can sign up for these vaccine providers in North Texas.

Updated Feb. 2 to include information on vaccines from CVS and UT Southwestern.

Vaccines are continuing to be shipped to providers across Texas, including in North Texas. 

Here are some providers that will alert you to let you know when it's your turn to get vaccinated and if you're in groups 1A or 1B, providers may help you make an appointment to get the vaccine.

Remember, the vaccine supply is currently very limited so it may take some time until the provider is able to schedule you to receive your dose.

So far, more than 1,947,164 Texans have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the state health department. There have been 499,436 Texans fully vaccinated, as of Feb. 2.

Dallas County

Dallas County has created a website where residents can register and prescreen for the COVID-19 vaccine in both Phase 1A and 1B. 

As of Jan. 11, the county is prioritizing the vaccines to residents who are 75 and older and to those with chronic illnesses. The vaccine mega center opened Monday at Fair Park.

Dallas County is offering vaccines to people who do not live in the county.

To register for the COVID-19 vaccine, you can visit the Dallas County Health and Human Services website here.

Tarrant County

Tarrant County has created a website where people can find out when they’re eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Tarrant County Public Health is one of many providers who will distribute the vaccine in the county and it's setting up mega vaccine sites.

The website will help people schedule a clinic appointment. It won’t alert the person if a hospital, pharmacy or other provider has a vaccine available for the group. The alert is only for the Tarrant County Public Health.

Go here for the website and to view the five steps to get both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Tarrant County's mega-sites will also serve residents of these 10 counties: Ellis, Johnson, Hood, Somervell, Erath, Palo Pinto, Parker, Wise, Montague and Cook, said Judge Glen Whitley on Monday.

Tarrant County has also partnered with Texas Health Resources to administer the vaccine at community clinics. That partnership is for people who signed up through the Tarrant County Public Health website.

Collin County

Collin County Health Care Services launched a website where residents can sign up for a vaccine waitlist if they are in groups for Phase 1A or 1B.

The online form will take requests in the order they are received. It will let residents know where they are in line for the vaccine and notify them when vaccines become available from the county's health department. It will let residents schedule an appointment.

There have been four vaccine hubs established in the county as of Jan. 22. 

Two sites are operating through the county's vaccine sign up page. Those are the CCHCS clinic in McKinney (which will be moved to John Clark Stadium next week) and the McKinney ISD football stadium.

The other two locations are operated through the city of Allen, which has its site at the Allen ISD football stadium, and Baylor Scott and White Health, which has its site at the BSW facility in Frisco. Those are both by appointment only.

The county receives short notice on vaccine shipments and will post vaccine availability on its website www.collincountytx.gov.

Most private health care providers, like pharmacies, hospitals, physicians, maintain their own vaccine waitlists separate from the Collin County Health Care Services waitlist.

Editor's note: The registration for UT Southwestern was closed on Feb. 2 because there have been 10,000 sign-ups. There may be more vaccines allocated in the future, so the portal will open and close weekly, UT Southwestern said.

As a state-designated vaccination hub, UT Southwestern plans to offer immunization appointments at three locations in Dallas: 

Those currently eligible for vaccines include individuals who meet the state criteria or have a medical condition that the CDC identifies as high risk, which includes asthma, hypertension and dementia. 

The portal closed Tuesday, Feb. 2, but UT Southwestern says that it will open and close weekly to reflect the amount of vaccine that is received from state and federal authorities. Check back every Monday morning and visit the website for updates.

To sign up, visit UT Southwestern's vaccine registration portal. There, individuals must create an account in MyChart and complete a short questionnaire. Then they will receive an activation code within three to four business days.
