Vaccine Information

The Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) has recently announced that all adults will be eligible for COVID vaccinations.

Anyone age 18 or older can get the COVID vaccine without an appointment at our Public Health Clinic, 206 Carver Drive. Clinic hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Fridays, and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays (except when GHD is conducting a mass vaccination event).

Anyone who is medically unable to come to the clinic or a mass vaccination event may contact the Garland Health Department at 972-205-3900 to make alternative arrangements.

Monitor the City’s Twitter and Facebook pages, as well as this page, for vaccination availability updates. 

GHD has received and administered the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine consists of two doses. The second dose should be administered 28 days after the initial dose. However, second doses administered as early as 24 days after the initial dose are still considered valid. Per CDC recommendations, you have up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose to receive the second dose. With GHD, you do not need to re-register for the second dose. We will contact you with appointment information.

When you receive the vaccine please ensure the second dose is the same type. Please use the V-Safe Health Checker if you have a smart phone. Save the card provided at your first vaccination to keep track of which vaccine you received. GHD does not provide replacement cards.

It is critical that everyone continue to practice personal protective measures to prevent disease spread until vaccines are widely distributed throughout our nation.
