The city of Fort Worth is ending testing and vaccine operations beginning Monday due to decreased demand, the city announced Friday.
City officials said that should public demand for vaccines and COVID-19 tests increase, they will reopen the sites.
On Friday, the Tarrant County Public Health Department reported only 29 new cases of the virus in the county and moved the community spread level from moderate to low.
Testing and vaccines remain widely available through the county health department (more information below) and at pharmacies, hospitals, and doctor’s offices.
Fort Worth’s COVID-19 hotline will remain active to assist anyone needing information or access to resource lists for the community. Call 817-392-8478.

- Testing and vaccinations for special requests and pop-up events, as needed.
- Vaccinations for homebound residents need to complete patient series every Friday, as needed.
- These testing and vaccination operations will conclude beginning the week of March 28:
