Ellis County Judge Todd Little announced Monday evening that a new partnership between Ellis and Tarrant counties allows Ellis residents to register for the COVID-19 vaccine and receive it at a Tarrant County distribution site. Concurrently, he also said  Ellis County continues pursuit of a vaccination hub to be located locally.

Per the county's news release, Little and Ellis County Municipal Leadership issued a letter Friday, Jan. 8, to the Texas Department of State Health Services Public Health Region 2-3 regarding additional COVID-19 vaccine allotment for Ellis County.

"As of today (Monday, Jan. 11), Ellis and Tarrant Count(ies) have established a partnership to allow Ellis County residents who qualify under distribution phase 1A (vaccinate health care workers) and 1B (people who are 65 and older and those who have a medical condition that increases their risk of severe disease or death) to be eligible to register in Tarrant County for a COVID-19 vaccination," the release reads.

Effective immediately, Ellis County residents in qualifying groups 1A and 1B may now register for a vaccine at https://tcph.quickbase.com/db/bq3q4uet8?linklocation=Button%20List&linkname=Register%20for%20the%20COVID%20Vaccine.

"Ellis County and city of Waxahachie officials are  working closely with the state of Texas to develop an ELLIS COUNTY VACCINATION HUB to administer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to the community," the release further read.

I know of at least 10 people in Ellis County that have been registered in Tarrant county for a couple of weeks. They were taking names from anybody, no matter where you lived.
