Parkland Hospital is now a vaccination site for people in group 1B who have any kind of history of care at Parkland and is reaching out to past patients through the MyChart account system. For more information and to learn how to sign up for MyChart, click here. Parkland is also providing vaccines to some individuals who signed up through the Dallas County Health and Human Services website (www.dallascounty.org/covid-19/covid-19-vaccination.php) and are contacting those individuals after receiving the list from the county.
Note: Group 1B includes all persons age 65 and up, as well as those age 16 and up with a chronic health condition. Many health conditions are considered chronic, including pregnancy, heart conditions and obesity (as determined by body mass index or BMI); several are listed at www.cor.net/coronavirus. To help determine BMI, the National Institutes of Health has an online BMI calculator at its website, located here.
