With guidance from the state (DSHS), JPS is now offering COVID-19 vaccines to those ages 5 and older who are current JPS patients and family members of JPS employees.
For immunocompromised patients who received Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, and for people over age 65 who received Pfizer, a third dose is recommended. This is not considered a booster. Third doses for immunocompromised or patients over age 65 are available at JPS Community Health Primary Care Clinics.
As recommended by the CDC, JPS is offering booster shots of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to the following individuals:
- 65 years and older
- Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
- Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
- Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings
Booster shots can be received six months after the second vaccine shot.
Vaccines are available at JPS locations by appointment only. Eligible patients and family members may schedule an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in one of the following ways:
- Direct schedule using MyChart
- Call 817-702-1100, option 7 to schedule an appointment
Questions about eligibility? Visit the Texas Department of State Health Services website for more information.
To ensure the safety of our patients, JPS requests one of the following documents be presented prior to receiving the vaccine:
- Driver's license
- State issued identification card
- Report card that includes dates of birth
- Birth certificate
- Vaccine record that includes date of birth
If you are unable to make an appointment at JPS because of eligibility, vaccine supply, or appointment availability, you may register with Tarrant County Public Health and make a vaccine appointment with a local hub provider. Find a list of available hub providers in your area.

We know there are lots of questions about where and how to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Getting a vaccine is an important way to protect yourself, your loved ones and your community! JPS wants you to have the information you need. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions and our answers.
Where can I get my COVID-19 vaccine?
Appointments are available for JPS patients and family members of JPS employees at various locations around the network. If you do not fit the qualifications above, you can register with Tarrant County Public Health to make an appointment with a local hub provider.
What is a vaccine hub provider?
Vaccine hub providers are locations equipped to administer thousands of doses of the vaccine to all those who qualify under state guidelines, and the state is prioritizing vaccine shipments to these locations.
Who can get the vaccine right now?
Beginning March 29, all adults ages 18 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Those who are ages 16-17 are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine.
Can I get my vaccine at JPS?
Yes, if you are a JPS patient or family member of a JPS employee, and if JPS has vaccine available.
I am not a JPS patient and need a vaccine. What do I do now?
Log on to Tarrant County Public Health's website to register for an appointment at a hub provider near you.
I am a JPS patient and my appointment was cancelled. Now what?
We are sorry to have to cancel your vaccine appointment. Anyone whose JPS appointment was cancelled because of vaccine supply has been put on our waiting list, and as we receive more vaccine we will reschedule appointments. Because we do not know when shipments may occur, we recommend registering with Tarrant County Public Health for an appointment at a hub provider.
