The City of Orlando is bringing mobile vaccination sites into neighborhoods in order to vaccinate students and families ahead of the upcoming school year. The goal is to curb a rise in local coronavirus cases before classrooms reopen in the fall.

Seven City of Orlando neighborhood centers will act as one-day mobile vaccination sites throughout July and August.

Students and their parents will be able to choose from the Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. 

People ages 18 and up can get either shot. 

Children between the ages of 12 and 17 are only eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine and must have permission from a parent or guardian. 

Pre-registration is not required and walk-ins are welcome at the sites. 

The first mobile vaccination site will open at Engelwood Neighborhood Center on July 12 from 2:30 to 5 pm. 

At a press conference in Orange County yesterday, Dr. Raul Pino says the majority of new coronavirus cases are in people between the ages of 15 and 34 who are unvaccinated.

Here’s the full schedule of clinics so far:
