FORT WORTH, Texas – The new variant-specific COVID-19 booster shots are now available in Tarrant County.
Roughly 1,100 doses of the latest COVID-19 booster shots have been delivered to 114 pharmacies in Tarrant County: 600 Pfizer and 500 Moderna.”The idea is that it’s widespread availability, and people shouldn’t just call one place and say, ‘I need the vaccine.’ There’s plenty of places,” said Tarrant County Public Health Director Vinny Taneja.
Tarrant County’s vaccine finder website lists daily clinics run by public health as well as dozens of additional vaccination locations.
“It’s there. They have it,” said Dr. Andrew Yockey, assistant professor of biostatistics and epidemiology at UNT Health Science Center. “Even if you have to wait, it’s usually like a 24-hour waiting period. And then you get a call, and it’s like, ‘Oh, we have a vaccine. Please come in.’”
