Tarrant County reported six COVID-19 deaths and 3,952 new cases on Friday. The county has reported nearly 10,000 new cases in the past two days and 40 COVID-related deaths in the past five days.

Tarrant County is offering free COVID-19 vaccines and testing at locations throughout the area.

The latest COVID-related deaths include a woman in her 30s from rural Tarrant County, a Fort Worth man in his 50s, a Sansom Park man in his 50s, a Mansfield woman in her 60s, a Haltom City man in his 80s, and a Saginaw woman older than 90. All six had underlying health conditions, according to officials.

Tarrant County has reported 412,822 COVID-19 cases, including 5,063 deaths and an estimated 371,941 recoveries. Note to readers: Tarrant County does not release data on the vaccination status of recently diagnosed patients or deaths. Officials have released this type of data once in June and it showed that nearly 100% of the new cases reported at the time (from May to mid-June) were in people who were not vaccinated. Further, county officials said fewer than 200 of those new cases at the time were in previously vaccinated Tarrant residents.


Children ages 5 and older are now eligible for vaccination, so the following vaccination percentages have been altered by the Texas Department of State Health Services to reflect that larger population.

  • According to Texas DSHS, 66.30% of Tarrant County residents 5 or older have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 58.11% of residents 5 or older have been fully vaccinated.
  • DSHS also reports that 91.66% of Tarrant residents 65 or older have received at least one dose, and 84.15% of residents 65 or older have been fully vaccinated.
  • More than 72.38% of Texas residents 5 or older have received at least one dose, according to DSHS. The rate of fully vaccinated Texas residents 5 or older is at 61.44%.
