(March 3, 2021 UPDATE) The City of Frisco Vaccine Clinic is currently servicing people on the Collin County vaccine 'waitlist'. Frisco is administering vaccine to people on Collin County's ‘waitlist’ because we received vaccine directly from Collin County. This is why Frisco is administering vaccine on Collin County’s behalf. Please note: Collin County is no longer making its ‘waitlist’ available to the public.
FAQs for City of Frisco Vaccine Clinic
- I have an appointment, but someone close to me (spouse, significant other, family member, friend-in-need, etc.) also needs to be vaccinated; Can they be vaccinated at the same time as my appointment:
Due to a limited supply of vaccine, only those with appointments can be vaccinated. At this time, we are not accepting walk up or unscheduled people for vaccination. Should this change in the future, this will be communicated to the public via our email newsletter, Focal Point. Subscribe to Focal Point here.
- I received my 1st dose elsewhere; can I receive my 2nd dose with Frisco?
We are unable to administer second doses for patients who received their first dose via another provider. If you have already received your first dose elsewhere, please contact the provider that administered your first dose regarding second does opportunities.
I’ve been fully vaccinated, or no longer wish to receive the vaccine; can you take me off the email list.
We received your request to remove your name from the list candidates for vaccine appointments. That said, a second email invitation for an appointment is already scheduled; Unfortunately, we’re unable to cancel the second, automated e-mail at this point in our process. When you receive the overnight email, simply ignore or delete. It will be the last vaccine invitation you receive from the City of Frisco. Thank you for letting us know you’re vaccinated. It allows us to offer the appointment to another person.
Who can I speak with about a health question related to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?
Please speak with your primary care physician.
What if I have mobility issues? Can I be vaccinated in my vehicle?
Yes. Please ask staff at the front door for assistance. If you are physically capable of coming inside for your vaccine, please do so.
How can I be notified of future opportunities to be vaccinated?
If and when we receive additional vaccine from the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). City of Frisco will use its city newsletter, Focal Point, to alert subscribers when online registration is available. Subscribe to Focal Point here.
I'm eligible to book an appointment but wish to receive a different manufacturer’s vaccine; can I do that?
At this time, we cannot accept requests for manufacturer-specific vaccines.
Why doesn’t Frisco use its own ‘waitlist’?
Frisco’s approach is based on guaranteed vaccine availability. In other words, when we receive confirmation about a specific number of vaccine allocations, we make that number of appointments available. Vaccine is allocated by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Stay healthy and thank you for spreading kindness, not the virus.
