COVID-19 Vaccination

Allen Fire Department has been designated a state distribution hub for the COVID-19 vaccine and expects to receive larger vaccine deliveries as a result of this this designation. Individuals who wish to receive a COVID-19 vaccine from Allen Fire Department must:

  1. Be included in either Phase 1A or Phase 1B priority groups as defined by the State of Texas
  2. Register for vaccine appointment alerts through Allen Fire Department. At this time, email alerts will be the only way to view or schedule future appointments.
  3. Make an appointment after receiving an email notification. No vaccines will be given without an appointment.

Online appointments are required for all individuals to help us guarantee the availability of vaccines and streamline the distribution process. Separate outreach efforts continue for Allen's senior living communities and others who may not have access to email.

AFD distribution hub

Allen Fire Department has partnered with Allen Independent School District to use Eagle Stadium for appointment-only, drive-through vaccinations. The parking lot provides adequate space for large-scale operations, allowing the administration of up to 1,000 vaccinations per day.

Other vaccine providers

Collin County has three additional state-designated distribution hubs, including:

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Plano1.844.279.8222 | Website
Collin County Healthcare Services214.491.4838 |  Website
McKinney Fire Department972.547.9000 |  Website

Please reference the Texas COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Locations map to find other distribution sites that may have vaccines available at this time.

Limited availability

Allen Fire Department does not control vaccine allotment or delivery schedules. Vaccine remains limited based on the capacity of the manufacturers to produce it, so it will take time for Texas to receive enough vaccine for all the people in the priority populations who want to be vaccinated.

With 13,000+ subscribers to our vaccine email notifications, allotted vaccines may not always meet the demand in our area. We know the appointment process can be frustrating while vaccine demand is high and availability is low. However, the supply is expected to increase in the coming months, and additional vaccines are in clinical trials and may be authorized by the Food and Drug Administration.
