Wednesday, Dallas County is set to reach a major milestone in the battle against COVID-19.

The Fair Park vaccine location will administer its 250,000th vaccine as more doses arrive and more people are made eligible.

A special ceremony is planned for 1 p.m. to commemorate the milestone.

It has been a busy week across North Texas since the state expanded COVID-19 vaccine registration to include any Texan over the age of 16.

On Tuesday, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said the Fair Park vaccination clinic will now accept walk-ins for anyone 75 years old and above, with no appointment required with documentation that shows age eligibility. However, Jenkins urged people to register in advance online.

In Denton County, 50,000 people have registered for the vaccine since the change in eligibility.

Tarrant County has seen a one-third increase since last week when it was announced the eligibility would expand.
