Community vaccination locations

The City of Fort Worth continues to host COVID-19 vaccine and testing clinics. Most of the community sites are available for adults 18 years and older only. Parents of youth ages 12-17 should call 817-392-8478 to learn about additional options.

COVID-19 testing and vaccination options and resources have increased dramatically in recent months. As a result, mobile testing and vaccine campaigns operated by the City of Fort Worth have been put on pause. City staff remains prepared to ramp up operations again based on community need or increased demand.

Several agencies have partnered with Cook Children’s Medical Center to create a state-funded Regional Infusion Center in Fort Worth. This site will accept patient referrals from healthcare providers to help administer COVID therapeutics quickly and safely with the goal of preventing patients from needing hospitalization.

It is strongly recommended that patients visit a physician to see if they are eligible for the treatment and have their physician submit the referral form to the Regional Infusion Center to schedule an appointment. 

The Regional Infusion Center utilizes the monoclonal antibody treatment Regeneron.

This is a state-funded operation. The center is at 815 Eighth Ave. in Fort Worth. Operating hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week.
