Orange County and AdventHealth have partnered up on a special vaccine hesitancy conference on Monday to try to get more people inoculated as quickly as possible.

Mayor Jerry Demings says shots are available by walkup and by appointment at these sites. Up to 1,000 doses of the Pfizer shot are available each day.
