Can you provide more advance notice on COVID vaccine availability?

Though Allen Fire Department (AFD) receives some advance notice of future vaccine allotments, delivery schedules are subject to change and temperature fluctuations during the delivery process may make the vaccines unusable. To avoid the possibility of canceled or rescheduled appointments, AFD begins scheduling appointments as soon as vaccines are delivered and temperature-checked to assure viability.

Appointment times are scheduled the same day as vaccine arrival and continue over the next few days depending on the number of doses available. No time is wasted to begin the vaccination process and no vaccines are saved or unused.

While vaccine supplies are limited, email notification to those signed up for alerts will be the only means to inform of vaccine availability. Register for vaccine appointment alerts.
