With guidance from the state (DSHS), JPS will begin offering COVID-19 vaccines to all adults ages 18 and older who are current JPS patients and family members of JPS employees. This will take effect on Monday, March 29. JPS patients and family members of employees who are ages 16-17 are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine only and will be scheduled at the Family Health Clinic on the JPS main campus.

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 to schedule an appointment

Questions about eligibility? Visit the Texas Department of State Health Services website for more information.

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.
