Status Update on Fair Park Vaccine Operations

Status Update on Fair Park Vaccine Operations

DALLAS – According to the National Weather Service, we will continue to experience below freezing temperatures through the remainder of the week. As a result, Fair Park vaccine operations will remain closed through Saturday, February 20. We are continuing to monitor the weather and are balancing the need to keep everyone safe against the urgency of timely administering the second doses of the vaccine. As soon as we can safely open again, we will.

We 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. When we reopen, only those needing second doses will be seen until we catch up, and we 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 we 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 we plan to accommodate those needing a second dose much sooner than that, please know that the CDC does allow for a 42-day timeframe.
