Second doses of Moderna and Pfizer are available for individuals who did not receive their first dose from DCHHS. Please check the schedule above to ensure we are offering that particular vaccine on the day you arrive. Please bring your vaccination card when you come for your second dose. If you are taking public transportation or a driving service like Uber or Lyft to the Fair Park site, you should be dropped off at the Fair Park DART station. A bus will bring you through the vaccination site and return you to the DART station.
Social distancing/facial covering policy in City buildings will remain in place

The CDC and Dallas County Health & Human Services continue to stress the importance of wearing masks inside when social distancing is not possible. To maintain a safe work environment, the City will continue the same safety protocols that require the wearing of masks by both employees and members of the public during visits to City facilities. Signage at City facilities directing mask wearing will also remain in place.
