Mobile Immunization Sites return to Township of Orlando Neighborhood Centers and Facilities

As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread in Orlando, the municipality is working to further expand vaccine opportunities to as many residents as possible. Part of this effort includes establishing mobile vaccination sites in neighborhoods.

Over the next several weeks, eight neighborhood centers in the city of Orlando will host one-day vaccination sites, offering the Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. We will also have one-day vaccination sites at the Orlando Police Headquarters, City Hall, and the Orlando Farmers Market in Lake Eola Park.

“It is clear that the vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others from the virus and to end the pandemic in our community,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. “It is critical that those who are not vaccinated get the vaccine as soon as possible, therefore the City of Orlando is committed to working with our partners to ensure that the vaccine is accessible to all residents, especially in our neighborhoods.”

Residents 18 years of age or older are eligible to receive the vaccine. Children ages 12-17 can receive the Pfizer vaccine with the consent of a parent or guardian. It is not necessary to make an appointment.

The #IGotMyShot mobile vaccination sites have been made possible through a partnership between the City of Orlando, the Orange County Government and the Florida Department of Health in Orange County.

ITINERARY OF MOBILE VACCINATION SITES:
The dates and times of the vaccination sites are subject to change. Residents can learn more about mobile vaccination sites at neighborhood centers and other Orlando Township facilities by visiting orlando.gov/mobilevaccines.
