Tarrant County Public Health is reporting an increase in positive COVID tests in our community.
After 3 months of steady declines, MedStar crews are reporting higher frequency of patients with a history of symptoms which may be related to a potential COVID infection and local hospitals are reporting increases in patients hospitalized with a COVID diagnosis.
The CDC is reporting that unvaccinated people accounted for over 97% of hospitalizations.
We believe a key to getting more people vaccinated is making it convenient for them to attend a local vaccine clinic.
MedStar is teaming up with various community, faith-based and business organizations, using our unique expertise delivering healthcare in a mobile setting to increase the availability of COVID vaccines.

If you would like to HOST a vaccine clinic, at a church, place of business, or other venue, send a quick note to MZavadsky@medstar911.org.
The UNT Health Science Center is partnering with MedStar to give COVID-19 vaccinations to Tarrant County residents who are unable to leave their home. If you’d like to request an in-home vaccination, fill out the short form here.
There is no cost to the vaccine recipient, and we have Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines available.
Help us make our region a #communityofimmunity!
Local media outlets have been essential in spreading the word about convenient vaccine availability.
