Status Update from Dallas County on Fair Park Vaccine Operations
Dallas County’s Fair Park vaccine operations are closed on February 23, 2021 as Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) has not yet received the next shipment of Moderna vaccine. While DCHHS expects to receive it by late morning or early afternoon on Tuesday, once received, it will need to be thawed for several hours. Fair Park will open back up for second doses for those due on or before February 16 on Wednesday, February 24 from 8 am - 5 pm. On Thursday, Fair Park will be open for individuals due for their second dose on or before February 17.
|Date||Hours of Operation||Eligibility|
|Wednesday, February 24||8 am - 5 pm|
Due for second dose on February 16 or earlier. Please plan to arrive around the same time you received your first dose.
|Thursday, February 25||8 am- 5 pm ||Due for second dose on February 17 or earlier. Please plan to arrive around the same time you received your first dose.|
The State has confirmed that Dallas County will have sufficient supply of the vaccine to ensure all those who received their first dose of the vaccine at Fair Park can receive their second dose but there are shipping delays due to last week’s winter weather event. Dallas County is only administering second doses until they catch up following the winter weather closures, and the County will start with those who are most delayed in their second dose. Please be patient as there are many who need their second dose and the County must space out individuals to ensure timely and safe delivery.
The CDC guidance is that second doses of the vaccine may be administered up to 6 weeks after the first dose. While the County plans to accommodate those needing a second dose much sooner than that, please know that the CDC does allow for a 42-day timeframe.
