Starting Tuesday, Eligible Orange County Residents Can Get Pfizer Booster Shots at Camping World Stadium Vaccination Site
The Pfizer booster shots should be taken at least six months after the second and last dose.
📢 Know The Facts:
If you are pregnant, you can receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Pregnant people are at higher risk for illness from COVID-19, so getting the vaccine could better protect them.

Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings says the Pfizer booster shot will be available starting Tuesday at the Camping World Stadium vaccination site.
Residents can also continue to get the first or second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines at the county-run vaccination site. All vaccines are available for free on a first-come, first-served basis.
The site is staffed seven days a week, between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm.
The FDA approved the Pfizer booster shot last week for people over 65, at high risk of severe COVID-19 or who reside in communal living.
Seventy three percent of Orange County residents who are eligible have gotten at least the first dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. The county’s 14-day rolling positivity rate has fallen to 9.3 percent.
