Vaccine Information


The CDC and FDA have lifted the pause on the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine that was put in place on April 13. Therefore, the Fire Department will be conducting a vaccination clinic on Tuesday, May 11 and Thursday, May 13, 2021 for those 18 and over who would like to receive the vaccine. The clinic will be held in the Training Room at 1200 Highland Village Road. Registration is required at the sign up link below. Registration will close when available slots are full. 

Important information:
  • Photo ID is required upon registration at the Highland Village Fire Department.
  • Janssen has only been approved for ages 18 and older.
  • Janssen is a single shot vaccination.
  • If you have received the first Moderna or Pfizer vaccination at a different facility, please remain on their list for the booster.
