A new COVID-19 vaccination site opened Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
The Community Vaccination Center will be open seven days a week. The vaccine will be administered at the facility by appointment only, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Arlington Fire Department announced Tuesday the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine would not be administered. Instead, the Pfizer vaccine will be available Tuesday for those who are due for their second dose.
According to FEMA spokesperson Juan Ayala, 3,000 people were expected to be vaccinated at AT&T Stadium on the site's first day of operations and 21,000 total during the week.
Ayala said the site could remain open another four weeks if the program is extended and vaccine supply remains steady.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The Community Vaccination Center, which is run through a partnership between FEMA, state and local officials, was previously located at Globe Life Field. Operations there were closed and moved to nearby AT&T Stadium.
For those who received their first doses of the Pfizer vaccine at Globe Life Field, the second doses will be administered at AT&T Stadium. Those in need of a second shot can arrive between 9 a.m to 5 p.m. and should bring their vaccination card.
The Community Vaccination Center is located in the northwest corner of the stadium, 900 East Randol Mill Road, in Arlington.
Handicap parking and wheelchair assistance are available near the entrance. Those who need handicap access should ask the police officers and will be directed to the front of the lot next to the building.
