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.

Mobile vaccination sites in Orange County are opening at Meadow Woods Recreation Center on Monday and Tuesday and at Goldenrod Recreation Center on Thursday and Friday from 9 am to 6 pm.

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. 

Demings says three mobile sites are opening on Wednesday at local high schools. The sites will be operated in conjunction with Orange County Public Schools.

“Another news flash here. On Wednesday April 28, the mobile vaccination sites will be operating at the gymnasiums located at Colonial High School, Evans High School and Jones High School. Again, Colonial, Evans and Jones High Schools next Wednesday.”

Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian with them to get vaccinated. 

The City of Orlando will also open seven new mobile coronavirus vaccination sites in conjunction with the Florida Department of Emergency Management starting tomorrow.

Shots at the sites will be distributed on a first come, first served basis between 10 am and 6 pm. Only walk ups will be accepted at these sites.
