January 11, 2021 UPDATE
Burleson Public Health has received notification from Texas Department of State Health Services that they will receive a very limited amount of vaccines this week. Burleson Public Health will work on distributing them to first responders, school nurses, persons identified within the city that are considered critical to maintaining continuity of operations and residents of long-term facilities. If Burleson Public Health receives any additional doses that can be administered to the next group (people over the age of 65 and those with pre-existing conditions that put them at a greater risk of severe disease or death from COVID-19) we will provide how to sign up at www.burlesontx.com/covid 

As a reminder, both Johnson and Tarrant County residents who are in Phase 1A or 1B groups can register for the vaccine with Tarrant County: http://www.tarrantcounty.com/covidvaccine  

January 5, 2021 UPDATE 
Burleson Public Health has applied to the State of Texas to be a provider of COVID-19 vaccines. The city has been approved and is waiting for vaccines to be supplied. Currently, there is no timeframe on when the vaccines will be made available to Burleson Public Health.  

Due to limited vaccine availability, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has prioritized the first groups to receive the vaccine as follows: 

  1. Healthcare workers
  2. Residents of long-term care facilities
  3. People over the age of 65
  4. People 16 or older with conditions that put them at a greater risk of severe disease or death from COVID-19

When Burleson Public Health receives vaccinations from the State focus will be to provide vaccines to the groups listed above. Burleson Public Health will keep the community regularly informed regarding its vaccination efforts and how people in the priority groups can receive a vaccine.
