Hundreds Wait in Line for COVID-19 Vaccine in Fort Worth

A line of people waiting for a COVID-19 vaccine snaked around the Tarrant County Resource Connection complex in Fort Worth, Texas, on Monday, January 4.

“I don’t know why they make you make an appointment,” Julie Hatch Fairley can be heard saying in this video, taken at the complex. According to local reports from Monday, Tarrant County residents were told to register and make an appointment, but some “just showed up,” leading to confusion and longer wait times.

Tarrant County officials said the vaccine was being administered to certain health care workers, people 65 years of age and older, and people 16 years of age and older who are at a high risk for COVID-19.
