    FWISD’s Wilkerson-Greines Activity Center Announces Extended Hours for the Convenience of Parents

    The Fort Worth ISD and the City of Fort Worth will offer COVID vaccinations to children who are 5 to 11 years old, beginning Thursday, November 4 at 3:30 p.m. at the Wilkerson-Greines Activity Center. The plan follows approval by the FDA and CDC that the shots may be administered to younger children.

    The decision to vaccinate a younger child is at the sole discretion of his or her parent or guardian.  Fort Worth ISD is working with the city’s medical director to accommodate parents and make the process more convenient and accessible for them.

    One of the most convenient places to receive the vaccine will be at the drive-thru location at the District’s Wilkerson-Greines Activity Center, at 5201 C. A. Robertson Blvd., 76119.  This site recently expanded hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays to assist parents with more options.

    • Tuesday and Thursday 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

    Additionally, the location offers both initial vaccinations as well as booster shots to those eligible.

    Booster shots (Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson) are available to those 18 years of age and older who qualify.  That includes teachers and school staff.

    The clinic is open to everyone and no health insurance information is required. No appointment is needed and you may stay in your car the entire time. The one exception if for 5-11 year olds, who may have to temporarily exit vehicles with their parent or guardians to receive dose for safety reasons.

    Initial vaccinations (single dose of Johnson & Johnson or first and second doses of Moderna and Pfizer) are still available to all individuals 18 years of age and older.

    Booster shots may be mixed. For example, if you previously received Johnson & Johnson, you may get a booster of Moderna or Pfizer. (See attached CDC graphic.)

    No one under 18 years of age is eligible for any booster shot. Twelve to 17-year olds who received first and second doses of Pfizer cannot receive a booster dose of Pfizer at this time.
